The Office of Research and Innovation encompasses the Office of Grants and Contracts, the Research Institute, and the Office of the Associate Dean for Research and Innovation. In brief, the Office of Grants and Contracts leads all efforts related to sponsored awards, including both pre-award and post-award support. The Research Institute serves as a day-to-day support center for college research and also functions as a unifying structure for our college research centers as well as other research units across campus. Working in tandem with Grants and Contracts and the Research Institute, the Associate Dean for Research and Innovation oversees research activity in the college and leads progress monitoring, goal-setting, planning, implementation, and communication of college-wide research initiatives.
