The office mission is to assist faculty and administrators in identifying external funding sources (including foundations, corporations, and government agencies) for both institutional grants and those in support of faculty research projects, to assist faculty members in the preparation and submission of research proposals, to prepare and submit proposals for institutional support, and to administer grants and awards from external sources. The Grants Office also provides administrative support to the Committee on Research.
