John Falconer Director Office of Sponsored Programs UNK
John has been director for the past two years, and under his leadership, grant-writing activity at UNK has increased substantially. External funding requests have increased six-fold, resulting in a tripling of funding received.
John works very well with faculty representing a wide variety of disciplines, and many credit his advice and assistance for their success in obtaining external grants. He also is a key player in UNK's effort to encourage undergraduate student involvement along with faculty in research projects. He sees such activity as an important ingredient in a high-quality undergraduate education, and serves as counselor to the UNK Council on Undergraduate Research
