The Committee on Research
Specific roles and responsibilities of the Committee on Research are to:
The membership of the Committee on Research shall be: Eight (8) members from the Colleges of the University; One (1) appointee of the President of the University; and One (1) representative of the Library.
The Committee on Research (CR) meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month from 2:00 - 3:50 PM in SA 4600A.
The PI Investigators Advisory Committee has been formed in response to a recommendation in the Research Strategic Planning Task Force Report of 2011. The recommendation builds on the identification of “continuous communication with faculty about research issues, organizational structures and potential opportunities” as a best practice and the “effective and sufficient administrative support for research” as a vision. Ongoing communications is especially important given documented frustrations with unclear policies and procedures surrounding post-grant administration. The integration of pre- and post-award functions through their consolidation within the ORSP is an important step in addressing historic challenges. The PI Committee will now work with ORSP and the PI community as a whole to complete the transition to a new grants administration model.
Specific roles and responsibilities of the PI Advisory Committee are to:
The following list of committee members consists of at least one PI per college, one PI representing grants administered by staff and administrators, and the Chair of the Academic Senate’s Committee on Research.
Current PI advisory Commitee Membership
