Grants and Sponsored Research

The Office of Grants and Sponsored Research assists faculty and staff in identifying grant and research funding opportunities, in writing and developing grant and research proposals, and in monitoring grants management activities.

Our Goals

Its goal is to advance the mission of the University through the use of external funds received from grant and contract awards. To this end, the office endeavors to encourage and support grant writing, grants management and sponsored research activities as these processes enhance teaching and learning, support institutional growth, promote faculty development and provide service to the community (see the Office of Grants and Sponsored Research’s Proposal Writing and Grant Development Guide).


Grant and contract funds received by the University are managed in accordance with restrictions imposed by the external funding agency or organization and in accordance with standard and generally accepted accounting procedures and federal regulations. This office assists with the implementation of grants and contracts, with the monitoring of program expenditures, and with grant reporting and closeout requirements.
