Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

Welcome 

The mission of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is to create and support a campus culture that promotes the research enterprise.  ORSP assists the campus community to apply for and secure external funds in support of research, scholarship, and creative activities. The office provides guidance, information, and technical assistance to faculty engaged in externally funded research, instruction, community service and other scholarly activity. In accomplishing this mission, ORSP ensures accountability, compliance and stewardship for sponsored programs as directed by the values of our campus and by all applicable Federal, State, and University policies, procedures and regulations.

Human Subjects Research and the IRB

The impact of the current COVID-19 event on humans subjects research may be significant.  Please click here for a memo from IRB Chair Kevin Brown regarding human subjects research.  Please note that during the current shelter-in-place order, no travel by researchers or participants is permitted.  

Recent Policy Updates

Research Participant Incentives. 

CSUEB now has a policy that permits compensation in the form of an incentive for participants in human subjects research.  Research participant incentives may be paid to current CSUEB students and people that are non-CSUEB students or employees.  CSUEB employees may not be paid a research participant incentive.  Student incentives are paid in the form of a credit of a student's University Student Account.  Incentives for people that are not CSUEB students and employees may be paid in the form of a gift card.  More information about human subjects research participant incentives can be found on the ORSP Policies Website.
