The Research Office provides administrative and technical support and oversight to faculty and staff in the development and submission of proposals to external organizations, including federal, state, and private-sector sponsors, to support research, scholarly, and creative activities. We manage all pre-award activities and the intellectual property development process, including patent applications and commercialization agreements. We collaborate with faculty and staff from all academic units and other campus offices to encourage the submission of grant and contract applications. We work with Fiscal Affairs and other offices responsible for post-award management to ensure that grant-funded activities are implemented effectively and that Principal Investigators are knowledgeable of policies and procedures.
