Collectively, the RDC guides the grant development calendar so that proposal development supports the College's mission and strategic plan. The committee reviews grant projects and makes recommendations to proceed or not proceed with a project based on a number of criteria. The committee also provides valuable input regarding policy development, potential partners, project planning and information about current or potential grant projects.
