New – Area of Research Fields in Kuali Research
New Area of Research fields will be added to the Supplemental Information option on 12/1/2023. The Area of Research section includes drop-down selections for Category and Sub-Category, as shown below. Once the enhancement goes into effect, at least one, and up to three, subject areas will be required to be assigned in the Proposal Development document (PD).
Once a Category has been selected, the Sub-Category drop-down will populate with the selections related to the chosen category. A sub-category must be selected to pass the system validations. For a full listing of the Categories and their associated Sub-Categories, please refer to the Subject Areas Mapping Table.
Only one category and sub-category selection is required, but up to three can be added to the PD to allow for multi-disciplinary projects. If the Areas of Research section is not completed, an error message will appear, and you will be required to add at least one category and sub-category before the PD can be routed. Units are encouraged to request this information from faculty early in the proposal development process to avoid possible submission delays. For more information and step by step instructions, please refer to the KR Areas of Research Job Aid.
