II. Proposal Details
How will the formation of the cluster help to advance NYU's priorities to significantly increase the proportion of NYU's full time faculty whose diverse research, life experience, commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration, dedication to building inclusive educational environments and commitment to public engagement, advances NYU's academic excellence, prepares us to holistically model support and mentorship for students, researchers, and other faculty from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups (including Black/African American, Latinx, Indigenous/Native American, and Asian), as well as women in STEM fields?
What complex and persistent scientific, social and political challenges, problems or opportunities will this cluster address? What impact can the proposed cluster have in addressing these issues that would not be possible without the cluster? How will the issues the cluster will address strengthen our ability to recruit faculty in a way that helps us achieve the goal articulated above (1)?
How will the formation of the cluster strengthen our ability to produce innovative, cutting-edge research in a way that distinguishes us as a leader in the proposed research area(s)?
How will the formation of the cluster strengthen our ability to seek and secure public and/or private external funding support for research and research impact?
What types of scholarly and professional development opportunities might the faculty in this cluster work on together (e.g., research seminars, public events, co-teaching, policy interventions, etc.?) and what will the represented School(s) and departments do to help ensure the success of the cluster as a whole, and each individual faculty in terms of progress towards tenure/promotion or other professional goals? To be clear, we do not expect members of the cluster to do
