Office of Research & Sponsored Programs

Office of Research & Sponsored Programs

The Office of Research & Sponsored Programs (ORSP) webpages provide the policies, procedures, forms, and tools needed to submit research proposals and manage sponsored accounts throughout the life cycle of external funds awarded to faculty, staff, and students. 

We welcome the opportunity to assist faculty and research staff in your efforts to obtain external funding.  We encourage you to communicate early and schedule a face-to-face meeting for an overview of services, processes, and procedures.

Please Note: All proposals for external funds (grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements) must be submitted through the ORSP, and must be completed and delivered to the ORSP no later than 5 business days prior to sponsor deadlines.
