In nearly all circumstances, a part-time faculty member at SMC cannot serve as sole
project manager/principal investigator for a grant that the college submits. An adjunct
faculty member interested in leading a grant initiative at the college must discuss
the idea with his/her instructional department and identify a full-time faculty member
to serve as co-principal investigator/co-project manager.
No, all grants submitted on behalf of Santa Monica College must be signed and submitted
by an authorized organizational representative or his designee. Authorized Organizational
Representatives currently include Dr. Kathryn Jeffery, Superintendent/President, and
Erica Leblanc, Dean, Academic Affairs.
