Faculty Studies in Burling Library

Eight small studies on the basement level of Burling Library are available to Grinnell College faculty for assignment on a one-semester, two-semester, or summer basis. Needs for which these studies are an appropriate form of faculty support include substantial research projects that require heavy use of the library's collections or a place, free from interruption, in which to write. The studies are not intended to serve as supplementary faculty offices.

Faculty awarded grants to support interdisciplinary teaching and research

Six faculty received grants through the College’s current award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which supports faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who seek to learn new skills to enhance their teaching and research.

Professor David Cook-Martin was awarded an Academic Enterprise Leave to study social networking analysis. He will incorporate this methodological approach into his research project on global networks of highly skilled workers; he also plans to teach it to students in his methods course.
