Submitted on behalf of Wade Pickren, PhD, Director of the Center for Faculty Excellence/Sponsored Research:
Starting Monday, March 1, 2014 Ithaca College has subscribed for a free trial of SPIN which will expire on March 31, 2014. The higher cost of COS PIVOT, which we currently subscribe to, led us to investigate other alternatives. SPIN was selected because it offers similar functionality in funding searches and alerts at a fraction of the cost of PIVOT.
The SPIN database includes information on funding opportunities from federal, state, foundation, and other types of sponsors. The database is updated daily. Nationwide, universities use the SPIN database more than any other resource of its kind. It contains over 40,000 distinct opportunities from more than 10,000 global sponsors and provides both active searching as well as automated, daily opportunity notifications.

A series of informal sessions for faculty to collaboratively discuss their approaches to designing ICC courses and assignments for the ICC will be held in February. Faculty who have taught courses or developed successful course proposals will be present to share what they are doing in their courses (e.g., activities, assignments) and there will be ample time for all present to talk about possibilities for developing or modifying courses to meet ICC student learning outcomes. Sessions are perfect for faculty who are already teaching in the ICC, those who have ideas but aren’t quite sure how to move forward, or those who have some interest in teaching in the ICC but don’t know where to begin. This series is co-sponsored by the Center for Faculty Excellence and the Integrative Core Curriculum.
