Vision Statement

Grounded in faith and dedicated to research and program development in the service of learning, the Office of Sponsored Research will be an active and growing presence in the University. Staffed by a part-time director and one part-time assistant, the Office will facilitate the submission of  external proposals, while continuing to provide resources for mentored pilot research supported by the indirect costs from funded proposals. It will provide training to faculty and students across the three Colleges in opportunity searches, grantsmanship, and the responsible conduct of research. The Office will be responsible for overseeing all projects sponsored by the Pathways enrichment grants.
