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 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.
What to expect:
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, 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 team 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. This will involve a presentation to the D&I group – currently at 2:00 pm on the second Tuesday 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.
