"Broader Impacts" resources

The Old Capitol Museum and the Pentacrest Museums as a whole can help you develop "broader impacts" components for NSF and other grants proposals.  Some of our relevant activities include:

  • Developing K-12 programming on history and humanities topics;
  • Helping researchers (faculty, staff, and students) present research to public audiences through lectures and gallery talks;
  • Developing traveling teaching trunks including information about Iowa history, the humanities, and UI research;
  • Developing museum exhibits or exhibit components for display on campus, as traveling exhibits, or in the UI Mobile Museum;

If you're interested in working with us to add museum-based activities to your grant proposal, please approach us early so we have plenty of time to brainstorm, plan, develop, and budget for your ideas.  

To discuss ideas or find out more, contact Trina Roberts.
