Originally from Marquette Michigan, Stacy Schwenke has taken the position as the director of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
The work is extraordinarily challenging and ever-changing. It never gets dull and it forces you to be current and to be strategic. It's very competitive, which I like, because I'm a very competitive person. I also like the fact that I have the opportunity to contribute and make a difference here.
It was an opportunity to be on a campus that has the enormous capacity to access external funds. I felt this was an opportunity for me to make a significant contribution to institutional strategic goals. I like Chancellor Shields and his progressive thinking.
I was born and raised in a small town and value community. The city is comprised of friendly people and I love the campus; it's beautiful. What's not to like?
I'm responsible for facilitating all faculty and staff interested in writing grants and procuring contracts. My job is to help them through the whole process from beginning to end. I am also excited about developing a stronger outreach component to assist campus faculty, staff and students in achieving grant awards.
I want them to know the power and benefit of writing grants. I did some grant writing as an undergrad and it made a difference for me because I was able to use that experience to leverage grad school admission and grad assistantships. My door is always open for anyone who has an interest in grants.
Ultimately, I want to make a difference for the campus, to have a positive impact. I need to learn as much as I can about the campus, so that I am able to improve the current process and for us to be competitive in bringing in extramural funds.
