We would like to hear from you both faculty members and staff. What external resources do you need for your research or program? What project areas are you looking to grow or need sustained?

We also would like your feedback on pre-/post-award operational components such as project development templates, budget samples, compliance checklists, time and effort reporting, monthly reconciliations, and budget monitoring. Our aim is to improve transparency and efficiency in our external grant development and management processes.

The Office of Sponsored Programs and Foundation Relations will hold two drop in sessions on Tuesday, March 26. The first session is from 11 am to Noon and the second session if from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Both sessions will take place in Academic Complex Room 220. Feel free to drop in during those times to share with us your ideas.

Who should attend? Current or future Principal Investigators/Project Directors, grant budget officers, departmental administration staff, and any other interested members of the campus community. If you have questions or are unable to attend but would like to provide feedback, please call Jill Shuey at x8029.

Information gathered will be compiled and circulated for review and to inform next steps.
