1.Define research infrastructure, identify elements present at WSU, and develop a structure to bin infrastructure elements for evaluation. 2.Within bins identify the barriers that exist to research excellence (technology, physical facilities, staff, and management). 4.Provide actionable recommendations that identify funding opportunities (facilities construction, technology acquisition, and ongoing operations) and changes in management that remove barriers and achieve excellence in research infrastructure. 3.Provide a tiered prioritization of future investments into research infrastructure needed to support WSU “research themes”. Charges:
Information to be collected: Survey of current Centers, Facilities, Cores, Laboratories for status of current equipment and capabilities. Survey of Colleges and Campuses for items that may not be listed in item above. Revaluate bins to ensure all relevant infrastructure is evaluated. Phase 1
Survey Results to Date (as of 10/21): Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences – Partial data received Arts and Sciences – No data received Business – Data received Communication – No data received Education – Data received Engineering and Architecture – Partial data received Medical Sciences – Data received Nursing – No data received Pharmacy – No data received Veterinary Medicine – Data received

Left to do for Phase 1: Get units to complete surveys Finish incorporating data into spreadsheets Finalize binning process ( collapse/expand? ) Assign subgroup members to specific bins
Evaluation and Output: Within bin identify the most significant barriers to excellence. In conjunction with findings of subgroup on Research Themes, developed a tiered prioritization list for future development and investment. Make recommendations for improved University-wide awareness and management of research infrastructure. Break into subgroups to evaluate within bins. Includes meetings with relevant facilities/instrument managers and user groups. Phase 2
Emerging Issues: Staff support Small equipment support Maintenance / Equipment updates Centralized support: pre/post award & human subjects

Charge 1. Develop a list of current and potential high-impact major research themes for discussion/comparison, and rate the research opportunity/research impact associated with these themes. 2. For each theme, rate the degree to which WSU is well placed to pursue the theme, including faculty strength, infrastructure capability, sponsor interest, and importance for maintaining intellectual diversity and creative environment.
Charge (continued) 3. Rate the research themes into the following categories: Tier 1- Essential for WSU to pursue- a “must do” Tier 2- Important for WSU to pursue- an important current or emerging area where we should consider realigning resources to pursue Tier 3- Areas WSU should pursue if resources are available, but not a priority for resource realignment
Charge (continued) 4.Identify barriers to research excellence and develop specific recommendations to improve the research environment and advance the WSU research enterprise. 5.Provide metrics and other information needed to enable ongoing assessment of the WSU research plan. 6. Provide findings and actionable recommendations.

WSU Visibility: Current outreach activities to increase visibility of WSU researchers related to both Phase I and Phase II indicators; identify gaps and barriers. Support system: WSU mentoring and nomination practices for faculty of different career stages for Academy Members, Faculty Awards, Fellowships (Phase I indicators). WSU support system and practices for grant applications (in particular large grants) (Phase I Indicator) and for non-competitive USDA, state and industrial supported research (Phase II). Barriers for faculty members to participate in outreach and global engagement activities that will enhance WSU Phase I and Phase II indicators
Sub-Group Activities between Sept 23 and Oct. 14 We had three meetings, focusing on two main items: 1)Faculty Visibility, 2) Developing Internal and External Survey Questions. Faculty Visibility We invited three national academy members to interact with the subgroup: Dr. Anjan Bose, NAE, WSU VCEA Dr. Guy Palmer, WSU SGAH, NAS, Institute of Medicine Dr. Norm Scott, WSU Alumnus, former VPR of Cornell University, NAE Chair of Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources of National Academy of Sciences
Main Conclusions of the Dialogs: Helping faculty reaching to the status of national academies requires a strong university-wide culture and support system: 1)Help recognizing achievements of faculty members at various career stages, WSU internal awards and AAU recognized major awards – need a culture to support and recognize faculty excellence in research. 2)Nominate faculty members of strong research records to state and national committees (e.g., WA State Academy of Sciences, Advisory Boards for National Policies) and support faculty for important professional activities (e.g., chief editors of major reviewed journals) – need to build strong faculty portfolios. 3)Identity WSU faculty members and make annual nominations. In general, 1 out of 10 nominated faculty members will get elected to national academies. Cornell has a group of academy members meeting every year to help identify and nominate outstanding faculty members – need coordinated efforts to nominate WSU faculty members.
Survey Questions (WSU Internal) Research Visibility How does your unit support faculty research visibility (e.g., information about opportunities, funding to meet stakeholders, funders, etc.)? What barriers prevent you from supporting faculty in research visibility? What tangible results have come from your publicity efforts (e.g.: increased funding, speaking requests, collaborations)? Awards and Recognition Describe your mentoring program to prepare faculty to be competitive for national awards. Please list your strengths in this area, and barriers and needs. Economic Engagement and Return on Research Does your unit value the economic impact of research happening in your unit? If so, how does the unit recognize/reward faculty for the added value? If not, why? Explain concerns, gaps, barriers, and needs.
Survey Questions (WSU Internal) (cont.) Domestic/International Outreach and Engagement Do your faculty engage in domestic/international collaborations? If not, why? If so, are these collaborations valued? How does the unit recognize/reward faculty for these collaborations? Explain concerns, gaps, barriers, and needs.
Survey Questions (AAU Peers) Specific activities that increased research visibility and success (Examples) Institutional support structure (Information about opportunities, funding to meet stakeholders etc.) Metrics for measuring success of publicity efforts Increased funding, awards, collaborations, start-ups, economic impact Mentoring programs for faculty to be competitive for prestigious national faculty awards International outreach and metrics for measurement Outreach efforts for industry-related engagement Transfer of discoveries out of the university Leveraging economic returns (royalties) to advance research enterprise.
Questions for external stakeholders Best practices for successful research funding WSU strengths Engage internally with faculty who have had interactions with the stakeholders and understand their perspectives and best practices.
