SWT exceeds $10 million in grants
For the first time in the school’s history. Southwest Texas State University has surpassed the $10 million mark in active grant funding.
More than 120 programs and research projects accounting for the $10 million in grant funding are now under way at the university, and school officials say they hope the ! * recent trend continues.
*• “Reaching the $10 million mark is certainly significant and it should be a source of pride for the entire univcrsi-** ty community. But I think a’s impor-*. tam to consider this a milestone rather \ than an objective. It is an indicator !; that we’re moving in the right direc-/ hon, that we’re making good progress and that SWT’s faculty is being rec-• I ognizcd for its scholarship and !* accomplishment,’’ said SWT Presi-*! dm’ Teromr H. Supple.
v, o 5 v i m ti»e spiring ol 1989, h-* encouraged faculty members to uc- jim. inuit uCi.ic in re sou* ch anc scholarly and creative activity. He also promised a renewed focus on seeking external sources of funding for SWT projects.
Dr. Paul Fonteyn, associate vice president of academic affairs for research and sponsored projects, said it is clear the university community has responded to Supple’s initiatives.
“When Dr. Supple joined us, there was about $3.6 million in grant money active at the university. In two years, that amount has almost tripled. That’s a remarkable record of progress over a short period of time,” said Fonteyn.
University officials point out that grant money is active virtualy cam-puswide with funding going to a rich variety of projects at SWT.
For example, the most recent programs funded which helped SWI surpass the $10 million mark include:
• A grant of $112,000 from the U.S. Department of Education to the SWT School of Education to offer an accelerated, professional preparation program for post-graduate students with an emphasis on teaching at-risk students.
• A DOE grant of $213,000 to the SWT Office of Minority Student Affairs lo establish a College Assistance Migrant Program to enable the children of migrant farm workers to complete their first year of college.
• A grant of $58,000 from the DOE lo help SWT establish a Russian/East European studies program in the university’s Center for International Education.
These programs and others join a variety of ongoing projects at SWT dial involve scientific research, scholarly activity and community outreach.
“One of die things that’s parucu-larly heartening about the grant activity at SWT is that it encompasses I every aspect of our mission as a ; unviersily. We have programs >; designed to enhance teaching, others
> which keep us on the leading edge of important scientific work and some
* dial allow us to offer outreach prog-
* ranis locally arid across Texas,” said
> Supple said SWT will remain I active in seeking external funding for ) university programs and research.
