Research Council

Charge

The purpose of the Research Council is to serve as an advisory body to the vice president for research and creative scholarship on matters pertaining to the development of research and creative activities at the University of Montana. To this end, the council is responsible for recommending to the vice president policies and procedures and to help maintain a dynamic strategic plan for the Office of Research and Creative Scholarship which will enhance the ability of the university to realize its potential for distinction in research, creative, entrepreneurial, and scholarly activities.

Structure

Membership of the Research Council is based upon the relative amounts of external funding and number of full-time faculty in each of the colleges, schools and unit. One function of the Research Council is to review the structure annually to determine the optimum membership.  For the initial year the membership will be: 

  • College of Arts and Sciences (3)
  • College of Forestry and Conservation (2)
  • College of Health Professions and Biomedical Sciences (2)
  • College of Education and Human Sciences (1)
  • School of Business Administration (1)
  • College of Visual and Performing Arts (1)
  • School of Journalism (1)
  • School of Law (1)
  • Centers and Institutes (3)
  • Library (1)
  • ASUM (1)
  • Graduate Students (1)
  • Missoula College (1)

The Faculty Senate will select the members for the Schools and Colleges and Centers and Institutes and the ASUM President will select the student representative.  Initial terms for members will be 1, 2 and 3-year terms to establish a rotating membership.  New members following the initial terms will be appointed for 3-years. The vice president for research and creative scholarship and the executive director of research and sponsored programs function as ex officio nonvoting members of the council.
