Summer Research Assignments (SRAs) at Clemmer College

Clemmer College decided to pilot a financial incentive program for Summer Research Assignments (SRAs) so that recipients could focus on research and scholarly activity rather than teaching this summer. The recipients were chosen through an application process, in which they submitted proposals to the Internal Research Advisory Committee. “Part of the reason we decided to award SRAs was to show how much the Clemmer College values faculty research. Providing researchers with undistracted time to complete a set of observable and measurable objectives that result in a variety of scholarly products is invaluable,” says Dr. Pamela Mims, Associate Dean of Research and Grants. “We hope to continue to provide similar incentives in the future as we hope they have a good return on the investment.”
