SP5.6: Enhance Creative Activities and Research Infrastructure

This project focused on the immediate personnel needs the Division of Research faces in delivering critical research services to support the current and planned increase in research-active faculty. With $45,000 in funding provided through the budget process and additional funding from the division, two new full-time positions in research administration were created to support the anticipated increase in sponsored-program activity. These placements will assist the division to proactively develop initiatives to streamline grants administration, lessen the administrative burden faculty face in meeting the mandated compliance requirements of sponsored-programs administration and support principal investigator informational needs. The impact of the two positions will be monitored to ensure the project’s desired benefits are achieved.

Goals advanced under this project are:

  1. Develop the financial resources necessary to achieve the University’s goals
  2. Optimize staff and faculty resources
  3. Expand technological resources

Indicators of success for these goals are:
