University Committee on Research and Creative Activity.
The purpose of the University Committee on Research and Creative Activity (UCRCA) is to expand the capacity for research and creative activity at UNO. The UCRCA makes funding recommendations to the Associate Vice Chancellor for Research and Creative Activity in as fair and as transparent a way as possible and supports all areas, types and disciplines of research and creative activity by pre- and post- tenured faculty and graduate and undergraduate students at UNO. The Committee is interdisciplinary—members represent each of the colleges and various departments across the campus—and are recommended for appointment by the Faculty Senate to serve three-year terms. Funding for UCRCA comes from Facilities and Administrative Costs resulting from external grant and contract funding.
The University Committee on Research and Creative Activity (UCRCA) is no longer accepting Faculty Mini-Grant submissions for FY2013.
We are accepting student submissions for May 2013 only (Due May 1). No other submissions will be accepted for FY2013. Please check back periodically for updates.
