Event Details

Broader Impacts refers to the potential for a research project to benefit society or advance desired societal outcomes. Having a strong Broader Impacts plan is pivotal to your chances of getting NSF funding, especially for assistant professors pursuing CAREER grants. Moreover, many foundations and private funders prioritize public engagement and impact in their grantmaking.

Whether pursuing federal or private funding, one thing is consistent–it’s critical to plan ahead. Much time is needed to establish partnerships, get stakeholder buy-in, negotiate project terms and expectations, and get appropriate approvals and letters of support.

Several U-M units support these efforts and can serve as your “front door” to community engagement, including facilitating projects with K-12 schools, local non-profits, museums and an array of external partners around the state.

Join us to learn how researchers can leverage campus experts and resources to develop compelling, dynamic and successful Broader Impacts or public engagement project plans. Panelists include colleagues from the Ginsberg Center, Center for Educational Outreach, Center for Academic Innovation, Center for Education Design, Evaluation & Research (CEDER), Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR), U-M Natural History Museum and Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
