Researchers may focus on an individual or small group such as a team or family, an organization such as a business or a volunteer group, or a regional, national or international economy or society. Whatever the focus — local or international, for-profit or not-for-profit — there is one thing in common: our faculty and students pursue purposeful action through vigorous research experiences.
Sponsored research includes research, scholarly activity, creative activity, instruction, or public service for which public, federal, university, or private funding is sought to carry out the project. If a faculty member, staff, or student is serving on a sponsored project, the project must be coordinated through the college's Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) Support Center, even if the person will not be the principal investigator. This coordination is required in order to ensure compliance with federal, university, and private-sponsor regulations, terms and conditions.
Other research includes journal publications, books/monographs, or book chapters/proceeding for which no funding is pursued. This type of research is not required to be coordinated by the college's OSP Support Center since no financial regulation is required.
For assistance in preparing a proposal for submission to a funding organization or for managing the finances of your new or existing grants and contracts, contact the college's OSP Support Center.
Additional reports may be available. Please contact the OSP Support Center to request additional information.
