In response to the new NSF proposal requirements taking effect this week, SPA has created two templates to assist PIs in creating their Safe and Inclusive Working Environments for Off-Campus or Off-Site Research.  

Template Plan for Ensuring a Safe and Inclusive Work Environment for Off-Campus or Off-site Research Activity. This includes a project-specific information sheet for PIs to complete, plus a description of Columbia-wide policies, resources and information relevant to safe and inclusive research environments, and a place to add any school or departmental resources.

Template Email to Disseminate Plan. This includes a template email for PIs to disseminate the Plan to all members of the team before they depart for field or off-site research activity, as required by NSF.  

In addition, a new certification has been added to the Rascal Proposal Tracking Data Sheet, to confirm compliance with this requirement.
