Office of Sponsored Programs & Research


The mission of the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research is to maximize the success of the University in winning and executing project and program awards, whether in the form of grants, contracts, or sponsored research.

Grants and contracts from both government and private sources provide essential support for the sustenance and growth of the University. The Office of Sponsored Programs and Research (OSP&R) is the focal point for ensuring that the university is successful in winning a reasonable number of such projects both in the short and long-term, and that it is successful in the administration and execution of those projects once they are awarded. In general, sponsored activities are directly related to the three-fold mission of the institution: research, teaching, and public service.
