Faculty Professional Development
Needs Survey

The OER launched the Faculty
Professional Development Needs Survey on
March 20. There is still time to complete it;
your input is very important to us! We
appreciate your cooperation with this
initiative as it will help us plan future
training programs for COE faculty.

Mark your calendars for the
following April 2006 events!

April Brown Bag

Luis Ponjuan, Educational Administration
and Policy, will be presenting his most
recent research on Monday, April 17 from
12:00noon-1:OOpm in 158 Norman.

Title: Understanding the Work Lives of
Faculty of Color: Job Satisfaction,
Perceptions of Climate, and Intention to
Leave

Description of Study: This study addresses
work life differences between African
American, Latino, and White faculty
members in doctoral institutions in relation
to faculty employment turnover. Using the
Department of Education 1999 National
Study of Postsecondary Faculty data, I
focused on three particular work life
experiences: job satisfaction, perception of
climate of equity for faculty of color, and
intention to leave academia. Three sets of
hierarchical linear models were used to


examine the African American and Latino
gap in work life outcomes.

NSF Training Opportunity

There is still time to enroll in this
videoconference training. Two sessions are
available: Friday, April 24 and Monday,
May 1 from 10:OOam-12:30pm in 158
Norman. NSF materials will be distributed
the day of the training. The following topics
will be covered: pre-submission, post-
submission, and post-award activities. The
pre-submission includes finding programs
and other information on the NSF website,
preparing the proposal on FastLane,
and preparing the proposal using a
Grants.gov application package. There will
be opportunity to ask specific questions
about your proposal ideas as well. After
initial training is completed, we will gauge
faculty's interest and need for additional,
more advanced and/or focused training.
Contact Ana via email
(anapuig@coe.ufl.edu) or telephone (96-235)
to enroll.

Federal Grants Submissions

Electronic submissions are upon us!
Paul, Ana, and Brian have completed the
Grants.gov training and will be available to
assist you with your submissions. We
would like to reiterate the importance of
getting your computer ready and planning
for early submissions.
To view application packages and
instructions through Grants.gov, you will
need to download and install the PureEdge
Viewer. If you have a PC, downloading is
easy! Go to the following website:
httn: / / Grants. ov / DownloadViewer and


1-NA."FRSITY OF

[4FLORIDA








follow the instructions. If you need
administrative approval, contact Tech
Support at oiitcoe.ufl.edu for assistance.
Macintosh users will require a Citrix
patch to download and install this software
successfully, but Mac users may want to
wait. A version of the software that does not
require the patch is expected to be available
in June. However, for NSF and NIH
proposal writers, planning to submit grants
before June, downloading the software and
patch now is especially important. To avoid
going into the tech support queue, let us
know if you want to proceed with the
download, and we will forward your names
to tech support. Contact Ana via email
(anapuig&coe.ufl.edu) or telephone (96-235)
to request this service.
As the latest version of FYI reminded
us, we must be prepared to submit early.
Grants.gov is a new system, and there are
certain to be errors and problems with your
first attempts to submit electronically. By
submitting your Grants.gov proposal early,
DSR and other local experts will be able to
help identify and correct problems and
finalize submissions.
It's a brave new world. DSR is
recommending that:

-- For all agencies other than NIH,
proposals be ready to submit no fewer than
5 business days prior to the agency
deadline.

-- For NIH submissions, proposals be
ready to submit no fewer than 14 business
days prior to the agency deadline. This
additional time is needed to allow for the
NIH Commons application check. If fatal
errors are identified during the check, they
must be corrected, and the application
resubmitted through Grants.gov to meet
the original agency deadline.
