The Office of Grants and Foundation Relations is service-oriented in the pursuit of
external funding support on behalf of the University and its faculty and staff. The
office functions as a conduit where faculty, staff, and the administration submit
proposals to federal, state, private, and other external sources for research and
scholarship, teaching, professional development, service, and departmental and institutional
goals and priorities.
The Office provides a range of services which include identifying opportunities, analyzing
funding programs and developing solicitation strategies, forging internal and external
collaborative teams, writing and editing proposals, designing and preparing budgets,
providing institutional narratives and statistics, securing institutional approvals,
certifications, and assurances, coordinating proposal submissions, and building and
maintaining relationships with external funding sources. In addition, the Office
supports post-award administration of grants.
