Office of Sponsored Programs, Office of Research Compliance moving in April

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and the Office of Research Compliance (ORC), which encompasses the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) administrative and support staff, will be relocating in April. Both offices will be moving from the Corporate Research Center to the new North End Center located adjacent to campus between Turner Street and North Main Street.

OSP will be packing the office and using temporary facilities throughout the month of March, so researchers submitting proposals are asked to submit early if possible in order to allow time for unexpected issues. 

OSP will be closed on Friday, March 29 in order to complete the move.  Proposals will not be submitted electronically, by email, or by express mail on March 29. Researchers with proposal due dates of March 29 or April 1 should work with their pre-award administrator to shift the submission to Thursday, March 28.

Contact Lauren Magruder at with any questions or concerns. OSP will occupy Suite 4200 in the Turner Street building effective Monday, April 1.

The Office of Research Compliance will move the following week to its new offices in 300 Turner Street, Suite 4120.

During the week of April 1-5, ORC’s normal customer service activities will be affected by preparations for the move. ORC will be closed on Friday, April 5, to complete the move and will reopen at its new location on Monday, April 8. Full service is expected to resume on Tuesday, April 9. 

You may email ORC director Terry Sparks at with questions or concerns, or get in touch with the applicable compliance committee (IACUC, IBC, or IRB) administrator.
