In the autumn of 1999, the Dean of the GAS convened a task force to review and revise the URG program.
It collected information about departmental review and rating processes, faculty productivity (presentations, publications, and grants) resulting from URG support, and models for internal grant programs at other universities.
With appointments at an all-time high, and continued retirements and hiring projected, the URG program provided an important support for pre-tenure faculty development and retention.
On the one hand, they were expected to mentor development of strong URG applications and advocate for funding of applications from their departments.
There was also the clear indication that departments strategized ranking of URG proposals to garner advantage with the college review committee.
The URG program (2000) that emerged from the task force's deliberations surprised all of its members.
