Committee Charge

This committee is charged to:

  1. To coordinate and undertake the initial review of CCCC Research Initiative grants, including “regular” grants and any additional grants instituted by the EC, and to provide ranked recommendations and summaries of each grant to the CCCC Officers in time for the January Officers’ retreat;
  2. Based on experience of that review, to offer advice on the design, planning, publicizing, submission guidelines, and support materials associated with research grant submission and review;
  3. To work with the Officers and EC to develop and implement additional programming or support research grant recipients;
  4. To recommend to the Officers and EC and/or undertake specific projects intended to foster a culture of research within CCCC and to disseminate research beyond CCCC members, e.g. in public venues; and
  5. To recommend to the Officers and EC and/or undertake specific projects intended to foster research that represents underrepresented voices and subjects among CCCC members.
March 2016 Update

We invite the CCCC membership to attend our session on research methods at CCCC in Houston in 2016: A panel focused on research methods, “Time to Take Stock: What We Can (and Can't) Learn from Current CHAT Methodology in Writing Studies Research”

We also invite the membership to a hands-on session during the new “Action Hub” segment of the Cs, offering Cs members the opportunity to work on turning their scholarly work into a “general public” version to disseminate.

We suggest the membership get actively engaged in attending to the federal revisions of IRB guidelines and their potential impact on writing research, and we encourage the membership to apply for CCCC Research Initiative grant funding.
