Funded by the Kavli Foundation, Center researchers Julie Risien, Holly Cho, and Brianna Keys are conducting this research in collaboration with several partners including the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the American Association of Universities, and the Association of Public and Landgrant Universities. Researchers are working to uncover and broadly share examples that demonstrate the department-scale processes and practices of change critical to understanding how to best support and guide reforms to our system of academic reward and advancement. The goal is to describe how meso-scale reform actually occurs and begin to identity promising principles of change. Through an in-depth and highly contextualized case studies approach we seek to understand the mechanisms of reforms that enable scientists to become better collaborators across disciplines, partners with community organizations and industry, teachers, mentors, policy informers, and science communicators.
