Office of Research and Sponsored Programs
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is a comprehensive resource designed to strengthen and advance the research, scholarly and creative enterprise of the University through active pursuit of extramural funding. The ORSP assists faculty and staff to find potential sources of funding for research, projects, programs and fellowships. We encourage faculty, staff and administrators to contact us directly to discuss research or program ideas. The ORSP can help identify prospective funders, interpret proposal announcements, review proposal guidelines, provide institutional information, and answer budget-related questions.
The ORSP is responsible for administrative oversight and stewardship of awarded funds and institutional compliance for all sponsored research activities at the university.
The ORSP provides education and support to faculty, students, and staff in current guidelines, regulatory requirements, and best practices for the responsible conduct of research.
The ORSP facilitates the management of intellectual property, technology transfer, patenting, licensing, and commercialization, and other entrepreneurial activities that complement and strengthen the mission of the university.
The ORSP provides resources and support for faculty to engage students in research projects and is a source of information for students interested in pursuing research opportunities.
The ORSP hosts University Research Days, a two-day annual event held in April, which celebrates student and faculty research and creative activities and gives students the opportunity to present their research and creative work to the broad university community.
