Center Grant Proposal Support

Large, multidisciplinary grant proposals require a significant coordination effort. For interdisciplinary proposals involving multiple Colleges or Schools, The Office of the Vice President for Research collaborates with faculty to organize proposal drafting efforts, solicit external reviews of draft proposals, facilitate the internal review and submission process, and support the establishment of an award management strategy upon receipt of funding. Contact us to discuss how the VPR office could support your large team’s proposal.

Research Administration

Successful grant management requires a wide range of knowledge about agency and institutional policies, compliance requirements, and new funding opportunities. We partner with colleges, research units, research support staff and independent faculty investigators across campus to advise on best practices for pursuing funding and executing research awards.
