The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) in Academic Affairs assists faculty and staff in seeking external funding to support research, scholarly activities and program development opportunities. The Development Office in Advancement seeks support from donors, alumni, and endowments. They also work with community businesses, corporations and foundations to identify funds to support research, scholarship and development opportunities. The RSP Director collaborates with the Director of Development and Campaigns to assist faculty in developing proposals for non-competitive or unsolicited funds. Foundations and corporations fund many programs such as scholarships, building construction, special academic projects, research studies and internship stipends. From awards that support The Center for the Study of Democracy to computer science co-op programs—the Office of Advancement has helped faculty secure unsolicited funds that support important programs that align with our mission and seek to improve teaching and learning for our community.
