For assistance in writing your federally funded Broader Impacts (BI) statements, sign up for a BI plan consultation. During the consultation, you can expect guided instruction covering the Advancing Research Impact in Society (ARIS) BI Toolkit. The Toolkit includes a planning checklist, BI Wizard, BI Project Rubric, and Guiding Principles. ARIS Toolkit resources are educational, interactive, and broadly scoped to meet NSF BI objectives. Consultation participants can expect periodic check-ins as they move through the components. After reviewing the plan elements and actively participating in the wizard steps, a researcher’s notes are summarized for use in creating a comprehensive BI plan. Once the BI plan is finalized, the Office of Research and Innovation will send a short survey requesting an evaluation of the ARIS Toolkit.
