New HEETF Allocation Process
  • Virginia Higher Education Equipment Trust Fund
    (HEETF) provides vital equipment and
    instrumentation in support of instruction and
    research.
  • The Provost, Vice President for Health Sciences
    and Vice President for Research agreed to form
    three committees - research, instruction and
    academic/student support - to review and
    prioritize requests.
  • All three committees concentrated on overarching
    university needs, like
  • Core facilities research and classroom
  • Building-related needs for the new School of
    Nursing and School of Business buildings
  • Faculty start-up and faculty development
    initiatives
  • Successfully allocated 12.0 million for central
    university needs, rather than sprinkling the
    funds among departmental or school requests.
