Welcome to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

Reporting to the Vice Provost for Research, this office deals with all matters related to research and sponsored activity in the University. For the provision of adequate services and support, the functions of this office are divided into three major sections: Education and Training, Proposal Development, and Awards Management.


The mission of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is to support faculty, staff, and students in the pursuit of academic, scholarly, and creative excellence as they seek external funding, to provide leadership in matters of compliance and research ethics, and to create opportunities that elevate research and the creative arts on our campus in line with MTSU’s mission and to serve our community.
