The HFA Research Council was established in the fall of 2011. Its primary responsibility is to evaluate all college-based research funding applications and to recommend to the dean those worthy of support. The council is also charged with recommending to the dean the College’s nominees for the Samuel F. Conti Faculty Fellowship.
The council meets three or four times each academic year; twice in the fall and once or twice in the spring depending on the workload. It consists of five faculty members and the Associate Dean of Academic Personnel and Research who serves in an ex officio capacity. Council members are generally invited to serve for two consecutive one-year terms.
Members of the HFA Research Council in AY 2016-17 are:
Christian Appy, History
Elizabeth Chang, Music & Dance
Steve Harris, English
Marios Philippides, Classics
Catherine Portuges, Languages, Literatures, and Cultures
