The Office Sponsored Programs' (OSP) staff will provide a general overview of the operations of OSP and discuss the life cycle of a sponsored project. What is our mission and purpose? What services do we offer? What happens at the pre-award stage? What happens at the post-award stage? These are just a few of the questions that will be answered during this workshop.

This workshop is ideal for new faculty, research administrators, and/or graduate research assistants.
