College of Arts and Sciences announces Faculty Enhancement Program awardees for fiscal year 2022
The College of Arts and Sciences has announced the Faculty Enhancement Program awardees for fiscal year 2022.
The purpose of the program is to increase the numbers and proportion of faculty members engaging in research, scholarship and creative activities, particularly those with the potential for garnering extramural funding and recognition. The program provides up to $10,000 each for faculty in disciplines that have not historically enjoyed access to substantial start-up or extramural funding opportunities.
The following are the awardees and their project titles:
- James Alexander McVey, communication studies, "Policing Public Memory."
- Angela Y.S. Park, political science, "Longitudinal Study of Local Governance Structures in Building Sustainable Communities."
- Shanna Slank, philosophy, "Grit Culture."
- Reuben Stern, philosophy, "Getting Legal Evidence Right with Causal Graphs."
Tenure-earning faculty members within three years of hire were eligible to apply for funding for summer salary and research support. Applicants identified a particular project culminating in a scholarly work that would enhance their research capabilities. The funding provided by the program will be complemented by mentoring from a senior colleague at K-State or elsewhere.
