Consultations are one to two meetings with a D & I team member to receive advice, feedback, and provision of and connection with D&I resources and references, and linkage to other SOM or content expertise if relevant. Collaboration on grant proposals as a co-investigator may result from a small number of selected projects, based on the time, content area and resources of the D & I member . We do not have the time, resources or staff to be a key part of many proposals or projects requiring ongoing substantial involvement. Some K awards mentorship may be possible.
We are also experimenting with a group consultation format once a month to provide feedback from our entire D & I team and selected others multiple members. This will involve a presentation to the D&I group – currently between 2-3:30 PM on the first at 8 am on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. This group consult is reserved for a small number of complex projects requiring crosscutting expertise and requires considerable preparation for the meeting on the requesters part.
Your consultation experience will be more efficient and productive if you think about and come prepared to share the following with the D&I team member:
· your specific question(s) and request,
· how this D&I issue fits into your overall research proposal or work,
· extent to which your program or question is ‘ready for dissemination’, and
· how you anticipate evaluating D&I issues.
To aid in this process, we ask that you please complete this Consultation Request Form. This form takes less than 5 minutes to complete and is confidential. Your completed form will go to Jodi Holtrop, who will contact you within 1 week of submission to coordinate a consultation meeting.
