President Kaler Announces Two Faculty Strategy Groups on Research and Technology Management

Faculty will advise new Senior Vice President of Research and Technology Management Michael Oakes on campus strengths and untapped potential

President Eric W. Kaler today announced two groups of faculty who will advise First Senior Vice President of Research and Technology Management Michael Oakes on the university’s research strengths and untapped potential. Importantly, these groups will also provide information on how to best meet the administrative research needs of faculty.

“I am grateful for the diversity of faculty who have agreed to serve in these groups,” said President Kaler. “They are an invaluable resource to Michael as he leads the university in expanding his research company.”

Each of the Faculty Strategy Groups on Research and Technology Management comprises related disciplines: one group includes members from engineering, physical and natural sciences, health sciences, and applied social sciences; the other focuses on social sciences, humanities, and performing arts. Strategy groups will meet twice a month during this academic year.

“I look forward to engaging these two incredibly impressive groups of faculty members,” Oakes said. “Together, we will take the investigation at Case Western Reserve to the next level.”

President Kaler sought input from the deans and faculty Senate leadership to create groups with individuals who reflect our diverse university community and represent the interests of our departments, schools, and fields of study. President Kaler added: “Together we will go far.”

The following are the members of each Faculty Strategy Group.
