Resources for Faculty Research

School of Architecture faculty conduct research across a range of disciplines, methods, and modes of dissemination. When faculty seek to participate in funded research, the School of Architecture’s Research Administration team assists faculty with the development and submission of grant proposals and the management of awarded grants. The Research Administration team supports both external (outside UVA) grant and fellowship submissions as well as internal proposals. We also support the day-to-day administration of funded projects to ensure compliance with University, state, federal, and sponsor guidelines and regulations.

Your first step is to develop an idea for a research project that you believe worthy of funding. You can do this on your own, with colleagues at the A-School, other University of Virginia schools, or other institutions. If you decide to move forward with developing a proposal, you should inform your Department Chair or Center Director and consult with her/him about such matters as the potential need for space, other departmental support, staff support, or course release (i.e., buy-out) from teaching. If you are unsure if you are eligible to act as a Principal Investigator on a research project at UVA, please reach out to the Associate Dean of Research, Andrew Mondschein.

Faculty are invited to set up time to meet with the Associate Dean of Research, Andrew Mondschein, to share their research interests and discuss research opportunities within the School, the University and beyond. The Associate Dean of Research shares regular communications about research resources made available to our faculty, including internal and external funding opportunities, workshops, and other research-related opportunities within and outside the A-School. The Associate Dean of Research is also the primary point of contact for any questions you have about using your research funds to hire an A-School student as a research assistant (SRA).
