Mark Berezansky, executive director of the IUP Research Institute, attended the semi-annual Grant Officers’ meeting, along with senior grant and contract specialist Tracy Eisenhower and grant and contract specialists Jennifer Beauseigneur and Kathy Boyd. The meeting was held at Bloomsburg University on May 21–22, 2019.

The Grant Officers’ meeting is a semi-annual PASSHE-wide meeting where information and ideas are shared. Topics such as the NSF Herd Survey, tech transfer, and the FAR regulations were on this year’s agenda. Twelve of the 14 PASSHE schools were in attendance. 

For the second year, the Grant Officers’ meeting was combined with a Grant Writing Workshop, this year taught by Robert Porter. IUP Art and Art Education faculty member Sean Derry and IUP Criminal Justice Training Center Director Denny Marsili both attended the grant writing workshop, titled “Writing Successful Grants,” which covered topics such as academic writing vs. grant writing, proposal structure, and how to “sell” your idea.       

The fall 2019 Grant Officers’ meeting will be held at IUP and hosted by the IUP Research Institute. The date and time has not yet been determined.
