CNPD Research News: September 2023

Please remember to submit research updates and accomplishments to the CNPD Research Office email at


Welcome Back College of Nursing & Professional Disciplines Faculty, Students, and Staff from the CNPD Research Office! To keep everyone updated on the news about your research success, upcoming funding, or research opportunities, we plan to send a monthly electronic CNPD Research Newsletter during this academic year. If you have suggestions or additions that you wish to have included in the newsletter,  please forward them to Miranda or Glenda in care of the Office of Research. We welcome requests for assistance in helping you prepare your grant applications and budgets.

We also invite you to review the updated Research Website that Jen Koller and Miranda Koster worked on over the summer, and kindly let us know if you have suggested edits or additions.

We have also attached an updated proposal flowchart to better assist with the proposal submission process. We wish you a productive Fall Semester and look forward to supporting you throughout the academic year!

With Best Wishes,

Glenda Lindseth and Miranda Koster
