Chapter 2 - Overview of Research and Sponsored Programs


The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs encourages, assists, and supports faculty and staff who are seeking sponsorship for projects or are engaged in a broad range of externally funded projects, also called sponsored programs.

Sponsored programs vary significantly according to the types of funding sources, the types of projects funded, and the types of sponsored program awards — but whatever the nature of the individual project, successful application for and management of sponsored programs require the coordinated efforts of individuals, committees, and offices throughout the university.
