The Research Development Advisory Council (ReDAC) was inaugurated in 2006. Its members are associate/assistant deans for research or individuals who hold comparable responsibilities for research development within their respective academic college or school. Council members represent the research interests of each of the academic schools and colleges at VCU, make policy recommendations to the vice president for research and innovation and serve as a conduit of information from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation back to their constituencies. The council meets monthly with the vice president for research and innovation and the associate vice president for research development to address topics of specific interest to the VCU research enterprise, to discuss policy issues, and to identify resources and supports necessary for increasing the strength and competitiveness of VCU as a research university. Affiliate non-voting members are appointed to ReDAC on a case-by-case basis by the vice president for research and innovation in consultation with the academic vice presidents.
