Because ongoing and productive research is integral to the mission of VCU, highly active researchers may seek Dean’s Office support for research reassignment. From course reductions to leave, research reassignments are based on several factors and are evaluated by the Dean’s Office. Reassignments can accommodate external fellowship awards and residencies that occur during the school year. Plan ahead for a research reassignment by applying for external residencies or fellowships that may also contribute to funding your re-assignment expenses.
Please Note: Applications for spring semester research reassignment are due by July 15th, and February 1st, for fall semester research reassignment.
