Supporting a Culture of Innovation
Regardless of sponsor type, funding amount, or academic discipline, the Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs provides faculty and staff with guidance and direct support to help secure funding for faculty and student research, community-based programs, student success initiatives, equipment purchases, and other functions of the university.
Our team provides oversight through all phases of the grant lifecycle, including identification of funding, budget and proposal preparation, award setup, award management, and award closeout.
Grants and other forms of extramural funding are not only vital to advancing faculty and student scholarship, they also provide avenues to community, industry, and education partnerships, helping equip our students to discover their gifts, discern their vocations, and secure meaningful employment.
