The Office of Research & Economic Development provides several kinds of research support for faculty.
The Research Development and Sponsored Programs activities can help faculty identify funding sources, develop effective proposals, and administer grants properly. The Research Integrity and Research Safety areas help ensure that research is conducted with integrity and with great care for both human and animal subjects. Finally, the Commercialization and Entrepreneurship area can help faculty develop effective means of developing their research findings and preparing them for commercial use.
The Office of Research & Economic Development offers summer research funding for both tenure-track and tenured faculty, and study leave for tenured faculty. (Leave requests for tenure-track faculty are handled differently.)
