Also includes interaction with the Vice-Principal, Academic and Dean on matters of research that are integral to the academic mission of UTM. Since research activity cuts across undergraduate and graduate programs, involves postdoctoral fellows, research associates, and faculty, and in many cases requires significant research infrastructure and finances, the VPR interacts closely with the administrative teams associated with each of these groups. Also collaborates with Departmental Chairs and faculty on long-term research plans and initiatives, and on the development of research funding opportunities.
