Office of the Associate Dean for Research and External Funding

The Office of the Associate Dean for Research and External Funding is a catalyst for identifying opportunities, providing professional development for writing proposals, facilitating interdisciplinary projects, and working with campus-wide initiatives related to faculty research and external funding efforts.

Our primary goals are to:

  1. Strengthen the research capacity and output of the College of Education by increasing the number of publications, encouraging collaboration across departments and across campus, and preparing graduate students as researchers.
  2. Strengthen the capacity of COE faculty to submit quality proposals and increase the number of proposals awarded to COE faculty.
  3. Provide an integrated, systematic approach to external funding efforts in the COE by working closely with faculty to produce proposals that fit the College’s mission, its 2025 goals, and the professional skills and interests of its faculty.
  4. Facilitate the integration of education faculty into interdisciplinary, cross-campus, and multi-campus funding efforts by utilizing campus-wide resources.

The Office of the Associate Dean also sponsors Research Support Workshops for faculty and students in the college. The sessions will cover a variety of topics related to educational research and evaluation; resources can be found on our Sharepoint page. If you have topic suggestions for future workshops, please email Morgan Jobe at mmc21@k-state.edu.
