The College of SBS is committed to assisting student organizations, community partners, our faculty, and academic units in enhancing intellectual life at the UA and in making southern Arizona a better place for all of us. For this reason, we welcome requests for financial assistance from those in the college who are engaged in such efforts.
In the SBS Support Fund Request Form, we ask that you tell us, in 250 words or so, what your goals are for this funding, the amount requested, and what other sources of funding or in-kind support you have solicited or secured (and if yours is a large project, feel free to attach a budget with these sources). You are also invited to attach promotional or other materials, should you wish.
Joining me in each review and decision will be one or more relevant associate/assistant deans. We promise to review your requests in a timely manner.
Requests are prioritized to support student outcomes, community engagement, and interdisciplinary (rather than single academic unit) activities. Projects guided by the values of equity and inclusion are particularly welcome.
You will receive an email notification of our decision. If funded, we appreciate hearing about the campus and/or community impact of your programming once undertaken.
Best of luck – and thank you, as always, for the energy and vision you bring to the college and your units.
John Paul Jones III, Dean
College of Social and Behavioral Sciences
