Introduced in December 2010, Tufts Collaborates! seeks to encourage the essential first steps in interdisciplinary collaboration by supporting new faculty pilot projects that engage at least two disciplines and cross institutional lines. The goal of this program is to establish collaborative research efforts that will likely result in competitive research proposals to federal and foundation granting agencies.

Successful applicants are chosen through a peer review process including faculty and administrative staff, and based on several criteria including degree of innovation and collaboration, potential for external funding, likelihood for sustainability and impact, and viability within departmental, school and/or programmatic frameworks. Grants provide up to $50,000 in research support.

Mutual Mentoring

Professional development is evolving as we enter a new phase in higher education.  More flexible approaches to mentoring are emerging in which no single mentor is expected to possess the expertise that faculty need for career advancement and satisfaction in a global and technologically enhanced environment. Mutual Mentoring allows faculty to set up networks of colleagues including peers, senior faculty, near peers, administrators, librarians or students.  CELT will be offering mini-grants for faculty who wish to set up their own network of colleagues to provide support in their career. The next round of applications will be accepted in the fall of 2015.
