The Office of Research and Grants exists to stimulate and nurture a culture of scholarly inquiry and provide opportunities for professional development and pedagogical improvement.

“Every human being, created in the image of God, is endowed with a power akin to that of the creator-individually, power to think and to do. The men in whom this power is developed are the men who bear responsibilities, who are leaders in enterprise, and who influence character.”

-Education (pg. 17.2)

The culture of scholarly inquiry continues to be built throughout the Oakwood University community every year through the continuation of the Faculty Development Grant Program, additional research partnerships, and the fruition of grants as a result of current research partnerships. We look forward to assisting our faculty, [staff and students] with their research and grant endeavors.

Faculty Development Grant Program
HISTORY
The FDGP was developed as a result of survey of the University faculty who expressed a desire to develop their scholarly work. The first Faculty Conference on Scholarly Writing was held on November 15-16, 2011.  Immediately following the conference, the University Administration made a tangible commitment to continue to encourage and incentivized the scholarly work of the faculty and the FDGP was funded. In its inaugural year, nine grants were awarded for a total of $4000, culminating with the first annual 2012 Faculty Research Symposium at the Committee of 100, McKee B&T Building on April 23, 2013.

The FDGP is currently in its seventh year and has awarded just under 50 grants in its history.

PURPOSE
The Faculty Development Grant Program (FDGP) provides seed money for research, teaching and service related projects designed:

  • To assist with the development of research/scholarly activity
  • To enhance the effectiveness of individual faculty members.

The FDGP supports those activities that lead to professional growth in teaching and research through increased scholarly writing. These activities may include support to generate preliminary data, analysis of data, or synthesis of the literature that will form the basis of a scholarly publication.

This year’s activities will include a number of workshops on various topics (i.e. Abstracts, Research Literature, Narrative/Design, etc.) and will culminate with the 7th Annual Faculty Research Symposium.
