Our primary purpose is to provide the administrative services essential to enhance, expand, and encourage the acquisition of external research funding by the College's research faculty, while assuring compliance with all applicable State and Federal laws, sponsor requirements, and University policies and procedures.


To provide efficient, accurate, and expert assistance to the CECAS faculty with services including identification of potential funding sources; development of proposal budgets; editing of proposal narratives; preparation and/or review of required internal submission forms; facilitation of compliance with Federal, State, sponsor, and University regulations; submission (electronic and/or hard-copy) of proposals to sponsor.
