Broader Impacts Identity: Impacts Framework & Proposal Design Workshops


This new, two-part workshop series introduces Cornell faculty to an adaptable, literature-based framework that can be used to address the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Broader Impacts (BI) criteria in a way that integrates each individual’s unique strengths, interests, opportunities, and aims (Impact Identity) into a concrete BI plan for a future NSF proposal.

Part I: November 5 @ 10:30 am - noon 

Faculty examine the scope and purpose of NSF Broader Impacts criteria and focus on defining their best approach for Broader Impacts based on the “Impact Identity” statements we will develop through a series of individual and group exercises and discussions. 

Part II: November 19 @ 11 am - noon  

Faculty members continue to develop their Impact Identity statements to include “rationale, purpose, participants, partners, and resources; all of which will result in the design of an innovative and plausible broader impacts plan that can be integrated into a future NSF proposal. One-on-one project design and writing support will be available to all workshop participants throughout the proposal development process following the workshops.
