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 stimulate research and creative activities by improving infrastructure, providing seed grants and matching funds, making researchers aware of funding opportunities, providing expertise on pre-award and post-award grant preparation and administration, and helping establish partnerships with public and private sector entities that benefit the students, faculty, and university.
