STEMM Research Advisory Board
Committee Chair: Dr. William S. Ball
Committee Members: Roster
Associate to VP for Research: Heather Geers
The STEMM Research Advisory Board (formerly known as UC Board for
Sponsored Research / Pathway A) was formed in 2012 as a permanent
committee to support UC Vice President for Research, Dr. Bill Ball, and
the UC Office of Research. The role of the Board is as follows:
To represent and promote the research interests of the colleges or units within an intercollegiate forum.
To promote intercollegiate and multidisciplinary approach to university research.
To advise the Office of Research on best practices to
promote intercollegiate and multidisciplinary research which will
recognize the efforts of all involved.
To allow constructive input into the operational management of research at the university.
To recommend to the Vice President for Research the most
productive and efficient use of resources directed at research.
In addition, President Ono asked Dr. Ball to lead an effort
to re-evaluate the overall mission for research at UC in the next 5-10
years and build the necessary infrastructure to create a sustainable
research environment that takes into account all research at the
university and the needs of faculty to remain productive in research
throughout their career at UC. Thus, one of the first charges of this
group was to make recommendations to the Executive Committee and
President Ono of what will be required to make this happen.
