The College of the Environment strongly encourages research collaborations at all levels–across disciplines within the College, with disciplines and departments campus-wide, and with external community, governmental, and NGO partners. To this end, we provide the resources below to help you think about how to engage in collaborations and how your research may benefit from the inherent broadening of impacts that results from collaborating.

Broader Impacts

FAQ on Broader Impacts (specifically for NSF proposals, but useful for non-NSF proposals as well)

Conducting Research with Tribes

“Walk Softly and Listen Carefully: Building Research Relationships with Tribal Communities”   is a useful guidance document to consult when conducting research with tribes, particularly given tribal sensitivity about the presentation of tribal knowledge in research.  The document was produced by the National Congress on American Indians in conjunction with other partners.

International Collaboration

“The Fourth Age of Research” is an analysis of research papers from the last three decades that demonstrates that international collaborations have higher impact and that nationally elite universities are also leading international collaborators. The article is written by Jonathan Adams, former director of research evaluation for Thomson Reuters.
