The CS/Math Lilly project was granted in November 2009 for the academic year of 2010 to 2012 with a total budget of $20,000 to promote new areas of research and interdisciplinary learning in computer science and mathematics.
The project goals include:
- Foster exploration of new research areas
- Create an integrated research and learning environment
- Promote close interaction between CS and Math department faculty through the development and exchange of teaching and research ideas.
- Increase opportunities for students to apply their knowledge outside of the classroom
The funding will be mainly used for the following purposes by the CS and Math tenure track faculties:
- Joint CS/Math faculty colloquium
- Funds for faculty travel
- Funds to invite other colleagues to campus for research purposes
- Funds for faculty travel to pedagogy related workshops/conferences
- Annual retreat to discuss pedagogy and ways of integrating math and computer science topics throughout the curriculum of our respective majors
- Hold joint recruitment fair
- Support for professional memberships
The online application is required for funding considerations.
