Office of Research and Sponsored Programs


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.
