About the series

Hosts for this office hour:

Susan Renoe, Advancing Research in Society (ARIS)

Wendy Nilsen, Deputy Division Director (IIS)


During this IIS Office Hour on September 21, 2023 from 1:00-3:00pm ET, Susan Renoe, PhD from the Center for Advancing Research in Society (ARIS) will present with Wendy Nilsen from IIS on creating lasting broader impacts, as they relate to the merit review criteria for NSF proposals. Susan Renoe will talk about ways to advance impacts of research for the betterment of society and the expansion of research. In her work as the Executive Director of ARIS, she and her team work to help elevate research impact by providing high-quality resources and professional development opportunities and by creating connections among researchers, community partners, and engagement practitioners. This Office Hour was originally scheduled for May 18, 2023.

This will be a special two-hour session that starts with a discussion for the first hour and then we will have a second hour in which members of the ARIS team will break out with the participants into small groups for mentoring around their Broader Impacts.   

The IIS Office Hours are for researchers interested in learning about programs and policies in the Division of Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS) in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate (CISE) at NSF. Office Hours are designed to give current and potential investigators a window into NSF. Attendance at office hours is voluntary and designed to help investigators gain information that can help them strengthen their proposals. Sessions will be closed-captioned.
