Institutionalize BID tools

   

Based on themes that arose in work with multiple HEI researchers, the ISE-HEI BID team recommends that Portal to the Public workshops be written into all HEI REU proposals as well as into most other NSF proposals.

Boilerplate language is offered to PIs to include in their proposals. Multiple summer camps co-developed by HEI researchers and the ISE become annual events.

Proposal development for researchers

   

The HEI staffer developed and offered, with the ISE staffer’s help, a series of 8 proposal development workshops for National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER proposers.

NSF CAREER proposal development workshop series guided participants to write and submit a NSF CAREER proposal.

1) guidance for enhancing the competitiveness of each part of the proposal

2) specific writing tasks to be completed between meetings

3) peer-review and feedback on proposal sections.

Expand HEI-ISE partnership activities

   

BID team staffers and others from the ISI and HEI partner to offer grade 5-10 summer camps in computer science, cybersecurity, and crow research in collaboration with HEI researchers who are potential BID PIs.

These summer camp collaborations further cement the relationship between the HEI and ISE, create opportunities for potential PIs to use these activities as part of their BI plan in proposals, and demonstrate an authentic partnership to proposal reviewers.

Develop customized BID tools

   

After meeting with each PI and eliciting their preferences, time, budget, and abilities, the ISE staffer creates a BI menu, customized to each PI, with cost estimates for the ISE to engage in each item.

The PI can choose from among these menu items based on time, budget, and project focus. The HEI and ISE staffers create a boilerplate language for each PI to customize for use in each proposal they submit.

Leverage BID tools for PI career advancement

   

The HEI staffer talks to Deans and faculty departments about the BID tool called Broader Impact Identity (we called it BI Legacy). The HEI staffer promotes the BI Legacy (Identity) Narrative as a usefulness in promotion and tenure dossiers.

The HEI staffer promotes the BI Legacy (Identity) Narrative as a companion to a researcher’s research agenda and suggests its usefulness in promotion and tenure dossiers.

Deans indicate their support and BI work is making its way through the appropriate channels to be recognized and considered in promotion and tenure committees (Oct 2018 and ongoing with little progress at present).

Broader Impact Legacy (Identity) Workshops are offered to faculty with support from multiple Deans at HEI.

BI position at HEI reduced

   

New leadership at the HEI released a new strategic plan with new priorities.

Decision was made to reduce, then eliminate the dedicated BI position at UWB.

The position was funded at half time for 2019, then eliminated in 2020.

The ISE staffer moved to a new position within the organization. No one replaced them in that role for the ISE. The HEI staff person relied on their existing relationships to continue communications between the two institutions.
