It is with great pleasure that Jacquie Phipps Dean of Research and Post Graduate Studies, announced the following faculty members as recipients of the Whitecliffe 2011 Faculty & Staff Research Fund and professional development grants. Applications and proposals were reviewed by the Deans and ratified by the Executive Management Group.
Jacquie commented that “The response to the call for proposals for 2011 was once again impressive and varied. It is encouraging to see such confirmation of our healthy and growing research culture.”
Research funding from the $10,000 contestable fund has been granted to eight faculty members; with a further three allocated support from the undergraduate Professional Development budget. Four faculty members have been offered extra research time and two also get support from the Postgraduate Professional Development budget.
