The mission of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences' Office of Research Administration is to support the scientific, scholarly, and creative endeavors of the faculty and students in the college. The office assists faculty, students and staff in the pursuit of external funding opportunities.
The Office of Research Administration supports the mission of the college by providing administrative and management services for sponsored projects. Sponsored projects include grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements–from both the public and private sectors–which support research, instructional and service projects.
Our goal is to provide effective and efficient support services throughout the life of all sponsored projects (pre-award, post-award, and close out). We also work to ensure compliance with Federal regulations and requirements as well as with the policies, procedures, and guidelines of the University.
