Assistant Director for Research Support

Dr. Wandless earned a BA in Anthropology and Linguistics from the University of Texas at Austin and a PhD in Cultural Anthropology from Rice University.

11 a.m. - 12 p.m.   |  DB 1.402   |  Downtown Campus

Many funding agencies want to know how the research they support will impact society, and how PIs plan to evaluate the outcomes of their projects. Participants will learn how to navigate the outreach and evaluation criterion for grant proposals, to plan activities that increase the influence of their research, and to engage programs already occurring at UTSA that impact the broader public.

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants per session. Advanced registration is required. For more information, please contact Dr. Ana Wandless, Assistant Director for Research Support, at ana.wandless@utsa.edu or (210) 458-8175.
