Office of Sponsored Programs
The mission of the Office is to shepherd programs and funds into and through the University and to assist the University in developing and maintaining the intellectual base required to attract external funding.
This Office seeks, pursues, solicits and manages funding opportunities for research and other sponsored program activities university-wide. Opportunities are found by establishing contacts with agency program officers, department heads, and other corporate officers; by conducting on-line searches, reviewing various sponsor notifications, and by personal contacts. Responsibilities also include establishing relationships with potential sponsors, identifying university resources, matching university capacity with agency needs and promoting the university to external sponsors.
