For those interested in submitting a proposal to the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates. As you’ll see below and attached, additional instructions have just been issued. Please note in particular that deans must forward the first round of proposals to the provost no later than October 1 for Phase 1 and November 15 for Phase 2. With that in mind, the internal deadlines for CALS will be:
Inform me by September 15 if you plan to submit a proposal via CALS — a quick phone call or email with a sentence or two about the topic will suffice.
Submit completed proposals for “Phase 1” to my attention, 116 Ag Hall by 8:00 a.m. on Monday, September 28th.
Submit completed proposals for “Phase 2” to my attention, 116 Ag Hall by 8:00 a.m. on Monday, November 9th.
Remember, too, that proposals from multiple sponsoring colleges are encouraged — these will require more lead time, so contact me ASAP if you’re planning one of these.
