What is Research Development?

Research Development describes a complement of support services and strategic, proactive activities to build institutional capacity and to increase faculty members' competitiveness for attracting extramural research funding. The Office of Research Development supplements the administrative and compliance processes required for external funding by supporting individual faculty members, as well as large-scale institutional initiatives to improve funding success and grow the research enterprise.

The Office of Research Development provides support for investigators in addition to or beyond the support available within their College, Center, or Department. We serve as a liaison between and among investigators, departments, potential funders, and the Office of Sponsored Projects to produce quality, competitive, and compliant proposals and to support faculty and staff in achieving their funding goals.
