Research Administration Office (RAO)
The Research Administration Office supports faculty, students, staff, and university administration in efforts to encourage and enable research, creative activities, and other expressions of academic scholarship.
What they do:
Sponsored Projects Administrators help faculty with the mechanics of getting research proposals through internal approvals (via Kuali Research) and submitted to the sponsor. All research proposals must be routed for internal approvals via Kuali Research before submission to the Sponsor. Please submit your proposal for review five business days before the due date.
Upon award, they represent the university in research contract negotiations and facilitate award set up. They coordinate any contractual needs during the course of each project and ensure close-out requirements are met.
Who To Contact:
Each Sponsored Projects Administrator is assigned a portion of the university. Contact info and assignments are found in the Directory.
