FOR OUR SCHOOL OF EDUCATION COLLEAGUES: OUTREACH DEVELOPMENT FUNDS
Outreach Development Funds (ODF) are an investment from the SoE Dean’s Office that enables PLACE to develop non-revenue-generating outreach programming in collaboration with SoE departments, the Teacher Education Center, the Office of Student Services, and the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
PLACE can, for example, support SoE faculty/staff in designing, managing, and marketing outreach activities such as conferences, book talks, webinars, workshops, and long-term partnerships.
