The UT Dallas Strategic Center Investment (SCI) grant program is an internal funding mechanism designed to seed innovative centers that aggregate collaborative faculty to address problems of significance and facilitate faculty recruitment and retention. Successful Center applications will have a compelling plan for diversity, equity, and inclusion, and community engagement.
