Mission Statement

Empowering research, discovery and innovation through seamless support, collaboration, education and compliance.


The purpose of the Office of Grants and Sponsored Projects is to provide comprehensive research development support services aimed at maximizing funding opportunities and ensuring compliance with regulatory standards. Through strategic facilitation, meticulous review, and seamless coordination, we enable researchers to navigate the complexities of grant applications, budget preparation, and collaborative endeavors. As stewards of institutional integrity, we oversee the ethical conduct of research and safeguard human subjects’ welfare through rigorous compliance oversight. Our commitment extends to post-award management, where we diligently monitor program implementation and financial accountability, while fostering strong partnerships between faculty and funding agencies. By streamlining processes and nurturing a culture of excellence, we catalyze innovation and advance the frontiers of knowledge.
