Health and Addictions Research Center Mentoring Group (rit.edu/harc/)
Joseph Baschnagel, CLA, Psychology (lead) CLA; Psychology faculty-Stephanie Godleski, Rebecca Houston, Lindsay Schenkel, Suzanne Bamonto; and GCCIS/Computer Science-Ifeoma Nwogu
This mentoring grant was used to bring in Dr. Katie Witkiewitz, a seasoned NIH grant reviewer and grant writer to mentor the faculty of the Health and Addictions Research Center (HARC) on grant writing and submissions. As a result of meetings with Dr. Witkiewitz we gained valuable insights on the submission and review process and received specific advice for some projects for which we are currently seeking funding. Dr. Witkiewitz also gave a research talk that was attended by 40 people from the general RIT community on her research in alcohol use disorder treatments. Finally, Dr. Witkiewitz met with current graduate students to talk about her research and general graduate mentoring. From the insights we gained we are now in a better position for submitting successful grants.
As part of this mentoring activity we gained valuable insights into the NIH grant submission and review process which we are immediately putting into practice on the grant proposals we are currently developing; gained insight on how to strengthen our research center through grant funding; and gained potential for new collaborations with a world class addictions researcher Additionally many faculty and clinical staff at RIT gained knowledge of cutting edge treatments for alcohol use disorder by attending Dr. Witkiewitz's talk.
Overall we feel this grant program is a great asset to RIT faculty and should continue into the future.
Informal Teaching/Tutoring Discussions Group
Stacey Davis, NTID, Academic Affairs & Science & Mathematics (Lead)
Includes members of the NTID faculty and professional teaching staff
Open to all faculty and professional staff who teach at NTID the Informal Teaching/Tutoring Discussions (ITD) provided both new and veteran educators a safe place to discuss some events and struggles they experience in the classroom, as well as some ideas for addressing them. It also helped to connect faculty to each other, especially since our faculty are housed in at least 8 different buildings on campus.
Faculty are now more aware of these ongoing events and seem to have an interest in attending. One even mentioned that she was excited for the next ITD because she had an experience to run by other colleagues to see how they would handle it and how to address these classroom issues in the future.
Mentoring Group for Development of Metrics and Models of Diversity
Marcos Esterman, KGCOE, Industrial and Systems Engineering (Lead), David P. Wick, SOIS and Division of Diversity and Inclusion; Jeffrey D. Burnette, CLA, Sociology & Anthropology
This faculty mentoring group sought to make progress to promote our activities in scholarship development and proposal writing. Our exploratory discussions centered on best practices in higher education and on establishing the state of the art in the measurement of diversity and inclusion in the context of higher education populations, namely students, faculty, and staff. Our goal was to examine and refine existing approaches in an effort to develop new avenues within the diversity framework that would help to inform policy and programs under consideration at RIT. To that end, we initiated our exploration with a literature review of several academic areas (ecology, sociology, economics, information science, and health science) that provided insight on topics ranging from the quantification of biodiversity to human diversity in population demographics.
The specific activities completed or initiated included: The creation of a subject matter reading list; the formation of a rough draft and outline for a manuscript that we intend to submit as a review article; a benchmarking assessment of 22 universities to identify best practices in higher education that are worth learning more about; and identification of the Mellon Foundation as a target to cultivate for funding future work in this area.
The intended purpose of the funds was to travel to an institution of higher education that was developing or using diversity related metrics to inform policy decisions within the institution. The criteria that we used to identify the institution that we wanted to visit included: Did the institution use metrics to drive policy? Did they have research clusters in diversity and inclusion? Were they recognized for diversity efforts? Do they have someone in a visible position to analyze diversity and inclusion data? Do we have any relationships with the institution?
We collectively assessed 22 universities and decided that Virginia Tech, University of Michigan, UC Berkley, and MIT were schools we would target to visit. We ruled out Michigan because of the institutional knowledge that Dr. Munson already brings and focused on MIT and Virginia Tech because of their relative proximity. We had a productive email exchange with DiOnetta Jones Crayton, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education and Director of the Office of Minority Education and Dr. Edmund Bertschinger, outgoing Institute Community and Equity Officer, both from MIT. However, we were unsuccessful at setting up a visit as they were reluctant to commit to a formal meeting. Ironically directing us to schools like RIT as, much of the best work is not being done in the elite institutions but by state universities and small colleges. We had some initial success with Virginia Tech and exchanged some emails with Dr. Menah Pratt-Clarke, Vice Provost for Inclusion and Dr. Patrice L. Dickerson, Director of Faculty Diversity. However, that too was ultimately unsuccessful. As a result, the funds were not ultimately expended.
Even without the intended purpose of the funds being fulfilled, we did establish a collaboration between myself, David Wick and Jeffrey Burnette. We have identified the need to expand the nature of diversity and inclusion metrics to be more comprehensive and adaptive to future needs. We have identified rich sources of data and strategies that we can draw from at other institutions. Lastly, we have identified publication opportunities and a foundation that we wish to pursue further (as descried above). This will be particularly useful for Jeffrey Burnette’s tenure portfolio when he goes up for tenure in 2020.
Crypto@RIT Mentoring Group (Interdisciplinary faculty collaboration on cryptographic techniques for cybersecurity)
Peizhao Hu, GCCIS, Computer Science (Lead); H.B. Acharya, GCCIS, Computing Security; Anurag Agarwal, COS, School of Mathematical Sciences; Sumita Mishra, GCCIS, Computing Security; Marcin Lukowiak, KGCOE, Computing Engineering; Stanislaw Radziszowski, GCCIS, Computer Science; Leon Reznik, GCCIS, Computer Science; Matthew Wright, GCCIS, Computing Security; Bo Yuan, GCCIS, Computing Security
Cellular Performance Metrics and Infrastructure Resiliency Group
Mark Indelicato, CAST, Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering Technology (Lead); CAST faculty-Miguel Bazdresch, Clark Hochgraf, William Johnson, Yossi Nygate; and Jennifer Schneider, CAST, CETEMS
We used these funds to attend two conferences:
William Johnson attended sessions related to emergency operations where real-time cellular communication metrics were important. Johnson had lengthy discussions several times during conference events with Michael Lambert, Director of Emergency Management for Santa Fe, TX County, who has extensive experience in emergency response and has had to work with limitations on communications during crisis management. While cellular communications is only one part of the puzzle, it is an important part since (1) many first responders are using the commercial networks and (2) emergency responders are skeptical of the FirstNet system’s claims to deliver adequate communication in a crisis. Johnson also presented our current metrics work during the poster session. Discussions confirmed that the cellular metric project was a valuable piece of the emergency response communications picture.
PSCR Stakeholders Meeting 2018
Clark Hochgraf attended and learned about a low cost LTE base station setup (<$1k) that we could use to setup a drone with an eNodeB and EPC. These are essential elements of an LTE cellular system and this hardware can be used to create our own LTE UE (User Equipment), which would give us freedom to customize the coverage data collection system specifically for drone deployments. Clark spoke with the founder of the company SRS (http://www.softwareradiosystems.com/) and a also few people using their systems and they said it was pretty good and much cheaper than any alternative ($~30k).
We feel this would be good to get a system for development of our future work placing us in a position to apply for external funding we need to show accomplishments and a history of successes - in addition to publications based on this work.
We have made connections with several players in the emergency response community that could be valuable background information for use during preparation of relevant RFPs. The culture in this funding area is based not only on solid ideas and successes and publication, but the establishment of relationships. NIST is allocated millions of dollars from NSF and we are cultivating a relationship with NIST through ISCRAM, the PCSR and the Homeland Security and Technology arm of DHS. We submitted two papers to the HST conference in October 2018. We have also submitted a paper to Resilience Week August 2018.
This grant is very important for us as we position ourselves for larger awards. These funds are crucial before we can be expected to have the successes required for larger grant applications.
The impact on our group has been significant. We have been developing our cellular metrics app and writing papers, but have not had the funding to attend key meetings with stakeholders, policy makers and emergency responders. Department funds are insufficient for the travel needed to cultivate these relationships. Without the Mentoring Grant Program, our group would not have been able to attend these two very important conferences. The immediate impact is that our work is known to this community not just in a disseminated work, but as we discuss in person and in context based on their needs and the work they are doing.
Gear Research Mentoring Group
Liu, Rui, KGCOE, Mechanical Engineering (Lead), and KGCOE Mechanical Engineering faculty: Alfonso Fuentes, Patricia Iglesias
One of the major missions of this activity was to broadly impact the teaching activities which are related to gear technologies. Through the gear research seminars supported by this grant, the invited speakers described their research works to our both undergraduate and graduate students and attracted several students to pursue their research projects in related fields. The gear research seminars were also integrated into our courses (strength of materials, material sciences, and tribology and lubrication) to show our students the actual applications and research activities related to those topics.
We also used this grant to support our graduate student mentoring activities through the visits of gear manufacturers. These visitors gave us a good chance to expose advanced gear manufacturing technologies to our graduate students.
In addition, the supported research seminars also offered our mentoring group great opportunities to enlarge our connections with invited speakers and local companies, several collaborative research activities have already begun and continued. Furthermore, these educational activities have been and also will be included into our grant proposals to show the integration of education and broader impacts.
This mentoring grant offers us an opportunity to develop our existing gear research group in KGCOE.
Firstly, this grant offered us a great chance to invite external speakers who are working in similar research areas to interact with our graduate students and inspire them. Secondly, through these opportunities, we expanded our connections with these speakers, and collaborate with them. Several collaborative proposals and technical papers have been published or prepared. Thirdly, the grant supports our two visits to local manufacturing companies to strengthen our relationships. Lastly, all the activities supported by this grant offer a great impact on our progress toward promotion or tenure. Specifically, Dr. Liu received his tenure-track position from mechanical engineering department in KGCOE and Dr. Fuentes received his tenure from mechanical engineering department in KGCOE in the past few months.
We all consider this grant program as a great opportunity for young faculty members or new research groups to strengthen the collaborations and enlarge the connections with companies and other universities. Under this grant, we have obtained such great achievements in both teaching and research. We would say this grant offered our group support and a great experience. We are looking forward to collaborating with the Office of the Provost and Faculty Career Development in the future!
Nasty Women and Bad Hombres: Historical Reflections on the 2016 Presidential Election Group
Mandell, Hinda, CLA, School of Communication (Lead); CLA faculty-Christine Kray (Anthropology & Sociology); Tamar Carroll (History); Michael Brown (History); O. Nicholas Robertson (Criminal Justice); Katie Terezakis (Philosophy); and Alison Parker, The College at Brockport, History.
In January 2018 I toured the Fuller Craft Museum in Massachusetts and met with the chief curator Beth McLaughlin and the exhibiting artist Adrienne Sloane. As a result of this productive visit, Beth McLaughlin agreed to write an essay for my book with Juliee Decker (Museum Studies, COLA), "Crafting Democracy," proposal under review with RIT Press, and Adrienne Sloane will be exhibiting her work "The Unraveling" at our 2019 exhibit of the same name. This was an invaluable experience because I have never worked with a museum curator before, and this will be the first exhibit I am curating. This relates directly to scholarship and creative development.
As a result of cultivating relationships with the Fuller Craft Museum, a $4,800 grant from the Farash Foundation (with Juilee Decker) will support publication of the book, "Crafting Democracy". This successful grant proposal is very important to me as I enter a new field of scholarship (material studies and material culture).
This is an exceptional grant because it allows for new learning opportunities, and new pathways to professional development, that aid researchers in leaving the comfort of our "silos!" I am so grateful to have received this funding so I can grow as a scholar and engage in interdisciplinary work that is important to my method - and to RIT as well! Thank you.
Healthcare Information Technology Research Team
Tu, John Q., SCB, MIS, Marketing and Digital Business (Lead), and SCB faculty-Manlu Liu, Sean Hansen, Quang (Neo) Bui
We used the grant to send two researchers to a workshop where they presented their research progress, connected with potential interviewees, and networked with potential collaborators.
The trip allowed us to get feedback on our research projects. At the workshop our research was presented and will be included in the workshop proceedings. We also connected with a colleague in the University of Buffalo and will potentially go there for a research presentation.
Great value to faculty to extend our network beyond RIT.
Effective Methods for Teaching Undergraduate Finance Core Courses Mentoring Group
Zhang, Hao, SCB, Finance & Accounting (lead), and Archana Jain, Konstantin Sokolov, SCB faculty
The funding supported one faculty of the group's attendance at the 2018 American Finance Association (AFA) Annual Meeting who returned sharing new ideas and methods on how to effectively teach finance courses. As one example came from attending a panel discussion, “FinTech: How Will it Transform Financial Markets and Services?” The panel included discussions on how new technologies influence financial markets, e.g. blockchain and cryptocurrency issues, resulting in the incorporation of these new topics into SCB finance courses in order to spark students' interest and expose students to the newest developments in financial markets.
With the support of the grant, one of the faculty members had improved teaching evaluations in an undergraduate course. Students also mentioned that they liked the discussions on the newest developments in financial markets. Faculty also benefited from these discussions -- partly motivated by the conference and these discussions, a new research project was started related to blockchain and cryptocurrency issues. "We feel that this is a very good grant program, and we are grateful for the support."
Effective Strategies for Teaching Graduate-level Mathematical Modeling
COS Faculty: Elizabeth Cherry (lead), Kara Maki, David Ross
Our mentoring grant funds supported a visit from Laura Miller (UNC Chapel Hill) to discuss her experiences teaching graduate-level mathematical modeling. The participation of our colleagues in some of these discussions helped to cultivate a broader appreciation of the unique challenges of teaching modeling and how earlier placement of modeling activities within the curriculum can contribute to the development of students’ modeling skills. Those of us teaching mathematical modeling over the next year (all of us involved in the grant) definitely felt the visit was a useful opportunity to discuss why this course is so challenging to teach and to brainstorm about different potential ways to overcome these difficulties. This program was useful for us in expanding our network in the field of mathematical modeling and in helping us to position RIT as a leader in mathematical modeling education.
Junior Faculty Success Club: Realizing Our Full Potential
COS Faculty: Christopher Collison (lead), Jeremy Cody, Michael Coleman, Nathan Eddingsaas, Michael Gleghorn, John-David Rocha, Lea Vacca Michel
Our group met weekly during the fall and spring semester since the grant was awarded. At each meeting we shared our personal successes and celebrated them collectively, and we shared our personal barriers and brainstormed solutions. Each member of the group started by presenting a reflection of their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats associated with their research progress and career objectives at RIT. We then considered how we could meet our personal objectives. We also identified opportunities that would allow for development of collaborations, development of external funding and development of peer-reviewed and published research. These meetings allowed group members to identify challenges and address them with positivity, responsibility, accountability and with the shared support from the group. We continue to meet, with our habit being locked in through this award. There is a higher level of collegiality, teamwork, "all-for-one, one-for-all" attitude that will last for years to come as a result of our mentoring group meetings.

CLA Faculty: Caroline DeLong (lead), Suzanne Bamonto, A. Eleanor Chand-Matkze, Paula Chase, Jessamy Comer, Kirsten Condry, Stephanie Godleski, Rebecca Houston, Jennifer Lukomski, Lindsay Schenkel, Alan Smerbeck, Tina Sutton
This is the fourth year of our mentoring group, and the first time we have met with mentors outside RIT. This year’s grant helped our mentoring group stay strong and connected. Meeting with external mentors allowed us to grow and expand our mentoring network. Several faculty in our group were interested in leadership positions and made helpful connections with the two external mentors who hold leadership roles. The mentors shared their experiences as women in academia and how they manage the responsibilities of their positions. This program is highly valuable to RIT faculty, particularly when mentoring groups are funded over a period of years. Our mentoring group formed a community within our department that has improved the climate for female and gender minority faculty.

Caroline DeLong (Lead) with members from CLA/Department of Psychology: Suzanne Bamonto, A. Eleanor Chand-Matkze, Jessamy Comer, Kirsten Condry, Jennifer Lukomski, Lindsay Schenkel, Audrey Smerbeck, Tina Sutton
The mentoring grant provided a stronger link among our group of women by formalizing the mentoring process to include academic books to read, and give us a way to gather everyone together for discussions and meetings. Our mentoring group worked really well because we had a mix of formal and informal mentoring, but keeping to a schedule and meeting regularly was a big part of our success. It kept us moving through our agenda for the year, and as we completed tasks we developed new ideas for the coming year. Perhaps the grant process could be adjusted to help not only develop new groups but also to maintain mentoring groups that are successful. This program has been especially valuable for new, pre-tenure, and non-tenure track faculty. Participants have formed research partnerships with more senior faculty - in one case, applying for an external grant together. Participants also reported feeling more welcomed into the RIT community and to have a better sense of RIT’s resources and culture. Without these valuable opportunities to discuss important issues relating to teaching and gender, it is uncertain whether these ideas and opportunities would have emerged.
