October 9, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Date: Monday, October 9th

Workshop Time: 2:00-3:30 pm
Event Location:  Virtual – please register at

A critical question and component in any federal grant proposal today is: How does your research benefit society? Community impacts – regardless of the name it goes by and which federal agency – can encompass DEIA, environmental justice, promoting inclusive and equitable research, community engagement, and workforce development. Whether your proposal requires broader impacts (like NSF), a Community Benefits Plan (like DOE), or something by another name, how you address community impacts can increasingly make or break your proposal. Success in this critical component requires applying a social science research lens to your grant proposal.

Please join the RTT Research Development Team along with  Dr. Amy Landis, Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Dr. Jessica Smith, Professor of Engineering, Design, & Society, and Dr. Kate Youmans, Presidential Fellow for Diversity, Access & Inclusion, to learn how to navigate the community impacts in grant proposals. Also joining us are outside guests from the Community Collaborative Research Center.

You’ll learn from a team of experts who apply social science and engineering research into their own practice and (re)discover available resources on and off campus to support you in creating a strong community impacts plan in your proposal. Please add your questions below in registration to ensure this workshop is an impactful learning experience for you.

The workshop agenda will include:

  • Overview of community impacts and federal agency expectations
  • DOE Community Benefits Plans
  • NSF Broader Impacts and Broadening Participation
  • Translating Best Practices to Other Agencies
  • Resources and Partners
  • Q&A (please include your questions below)
