Program to Enhance Organizational Research Impact Capacity (ORIC)

For several years, ARIS and its predecessor, the National Alliance for Broader Impacts (NABI), have delivered professional development workshops at individual institutions across the United States. As the demand for this training has steadily increased over the years, it has become apparent that ARIS can amplify its impact by working with organizations to help them build/expand their own capacity to support research impact (RI) efforts.

This led to the Program to Enhance Organizational Research Impact Capacity (ORIC). Institutions and organizations participating in this year-long program will receive training, resources and mentorship which will allow them to substantially enhance their internal capacity to support RI efforts, while becoming part of an RI community of practice.
