Spend a full day with MSU's broader impacts consultants away from your everyday responsibilities working on the broader impacts plan for your next NSF proposal. We will start at 10 a.m. with a quick overview of the fundamentals of broader impacts and an introduction to the ARIS Broader Impacts Toolkit, a suite of online tools to assist you in developing your BI plan. BI consultants will be on hand throughout the day to answer your questions and provide individual consultation and feedback on your BI plan. Lunch, beverages, and parking passes are provided.
