Office of the Vice President for Research

Support for Researchers

From undergraduates just embarking on their first research journeys to tenured professors of the highest caliber, the Office of the Vice President for Research works to ensure the richest and most effective research experience for all of Carolina's scholars.

A core component of our mission at the Office of Research is creating an environment that supports the scholarly and creative activities of all faculty and students. Our various research support offices help researchers prepare and submit proposals for external funding, work ethically with human and animal subjects, identify funding opportunities, manage data and successfully complete the other steps involved in the research process.

In addition to providing administrative assistance, we work to encourage participation of under-represented minorities throughout the ranks of Carolina's student and faculty researchers, and to support postdoctoral scholars who are just setting out on exciting careers in scholarship and innovation.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
