Sponsor Spotlight: The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

Research Development Brown Bag Lunch Webinars

October 3, 2023

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM




Chicago, IL 60612



The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (Mellon) makes grants to support communities through the power of the arts and humanities, a funding strategy that aligns with UIC researchers exploring the interaction of social justice, culture, and the arts. However, with several broad priority areas and policies discouraging unsolicited proposals, it can be challenging for faculty to understand how best to engage with Mellon — and where to even begin. This brown bag lunch webinar, hosted by the UIC Office of Research Development, will feature faculty speakers from across campus who have secured funding from Mellon, along with staff from the Corporate & Foundation Relations team. This presentation will allow participants to learn directly from Mellon grantees about their experiences partnering with the foundation to contribute to a more connected, creative,  and just society. This presentation is well-suited for faculty working in a wide array of disciplines, including liberal arts and sciences, diversity and equity, urban planning and policy, social justice, and the arts, as well as others.

Teri A. McMurtry-Chubb – Professor of Law; School of Law Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development
Jane Rhodes – Professor of Black Studies; LAS Associate Dean for Research and Programs in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Interdisciplinary Studies; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; and Community Engagement

Advancement Speaker
Morgan Benson – Senior Director of Foundation Relations, Corporate and Foundation Relations, Office for the Vice Chancellor for Advancement at UIC
