Research Advisory Committee


The committee is advisory to the Dean in developing a global strategic vision for the institutional research enterprise, and in recommending plans for achieving this vision.  The work of the committee is strategic in nature, and does not interfere with the established institutional review and evaluation processes.  The committee recommendations add value to the institutional research mission globally, as well as to the administration, departments, and individual investigators.

Research Advisory Committee (RAC) members should act as liaisons between the RAC and their peers/faculty.  Members should openly share information (unless they are told a particular item is confidential).  They should discuss the issues and challenges that are brought forward to the RAC, and solicit faculty input with the purposeful intention of bringing that input back to the RAC.

Faculty who have input to share with the committee can contact any member of the RAC, or Pattie Smith, at, to provide their comments.  Comments will be shared with the full committee.
