Faculty Resources

Ways that OMI supports Faculty 

OMI supports Faculty community engagement in a range of different ways.  The office does this by:

  • Assisting faculty and staff in collaborating with nonprofit and community partners;
  • Supporting project and programs that advance faculty research and student learning;
  • Providing annual seed grant funding that support community-based research, community engagement and related programming with community partners; and
  • Raising the profile of community partnerships among campus and external constituents by publicly recognizing the work of engaged faulty.

Seed Grants

“OMI’s seed grant program made our project possible. There are not a lot of funders willing to risk much on research that straddles academic and community interests. Not only was OMI enthusiastic about the proposal they have remained an essential partner as the project expanded."  Joshua Akers, Assistant Professor of Geography and Urban and Regional Studies
