Invitation to Open Forum

Invitation to Open Forum Regarding UPEI Internal Research Funding
June 18, 2013

Dear Members of the Campus Community:

As most of you are aware, the UPEI internal funding program is currently on hiatus due to budgetary cutbacks.  In the interim, the suite of programs offered by the Research Grants Committee is being reviewed, with a focus toward determining the most appropriate mechanisms for distributing funding in order to meet both the committee’s mandate and the needs of the campus community. I will be hosting an open forum on Tuesday, June 18th, from 2-3pm in the Main Building Faculty Lounge in order to solicit input on the vision and structure of the internal funding program. Given that it may be possible to reinstate some of the program offerings prior to the fall semester 2013, it is important that we be aware of your concerns and suggestions now.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the future operations of this program. In the event that this timing is not suitable for your schedule, another meeting will be held this summer (details will be circulated in the near future).

With best regards,

Robert F. Gilmour, Jr.
Vice-President Research
