12-2 PM

The final session in the NSF CAREER 2020 series, Resources and Partnerships for Broader Impacts Design, will take a deeper dive into the common areas of National Science Foundation (NSF) broader impacts that often challenge researchers.  During the first half of the workshop, four expert panelists will each share insights and lead discussion around key challenge areas in NSF Broader Impacts Design. They are:

  • Principles of Partnership, Anna Sims Bartel Associate Director, Community Engaged Curricula and Practice, Cornell Office of Engagement Initiatives;
  • Broadening Participation with NSF Broader Impacts Programs, Diane Levitt, Senior Director of K-12 Education at Cornell Tech, NYC;
  • Community Perspectives on BI Partnerships, Michelle Kortenaar, Executive Director, Sciencenter;
  • Evaluation and Assessment, Amanda Wittman, Associate Director, Community Engaged Curricula and Strategy, Cornell Office of Engagement Initiatives

In the forum’s second half, faculty will join breakout rooms and meet a variety of excellent campus and community partners, from the Sciencenter, Ithaca Children’s Garden, Tompkins Cortland Community College, Discover Cayuga Lake, Museum of the Earth, WSKG Public Radio, Cornell Cooperative Extension and more. Digital resources and grant development support will be provided.

Designed to help faculty prepare innovative and feasible NSF proposals, the session is sponsored by the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity and the Office of Sponsored Programs, and supported with partial NSF funding. For more information, contact
