Research Alliance

The goal of the KIND Research Alliance initiative is to promote collaborative interdisciplinary research across the CSU system. The KIND Research Alliance plans to create a systemic structure that fosters inclusive faculty research networks leading to improved research productivity for participating faculty. The initiative consists of providing seed grants to junior and mid-career faculty especially women and URM faculty to work collaboratively. A number of supporting activities such as grant writing workshops, in-person and virtual meetings are planned throughout the year to support the faculty. We also plan to create a database of research facilities and equipment across CSU system along with faculty and their research interests.
