The office provides notices of grant opportunities and works with faculty and administrators over the life-cycle of a grant – from concept development through close-out.
The Professional Activity Report and Self-Evaluation (PARSE) is the documentation of a faculty member’s accomplishments during each academic year and cumulatively, in the three principal areas of teaching, scholarly and professional growth, and service.

Join illustrator Sara Gómez Woolley and author Leigh Lewis for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of National Geographic Kids’ new book, PIRATE QUEENS. Moderated by Professor George Garrastegui as part of the COMD Meet the Pros series, this conversation will discuss the intersection of research and illustration, to the written manuscript and will illuminate the process behind creating a culturally and historically accurate illustrated book. Through these Illustrations we will explore the lives of these amazing women who lived outside the roles assigned to them by gender and birth, turning to piracy and ruling their day. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
This in-person event will be at the NEW Academic Complex Theater.
