Office for Sponsored Programs

Welcome to the Office for Sponsored Programs. As a Unit of the Office for Research and Economic Development, OSP encourages Research, Instruction and Public Service through support of faculty and University personnel in the pursuit and administration of externally funded grants and contracts, in compliance with the requirements established by Federal and State laws, sponsor rules and regulations and University policies and procedures.

Human Subjects: OSP is committed to protection of participants in research, public service, and training programs. All sponsors must address issues regarding the ethical conduct of the research, dissemination of knowledge gained from the research, and the availability of health care to injured research participants.
