Research Administration Certificate Program

The Research Administration Certificate Program, developed in collaboration with a cross-campus advisory committee and coordinated through the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), is a professional development opportunity designed to educate staff about sponsored programs administration.  

The curriculum provides a deeper understanding of key concepts related to grant and contract administration. Participants attend 10 sessions, engage in problem-based learning exercises, and other hands-on activities to receive the Research Administration certificate.   

The kick-off session will be held on September 17 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in Merten Hall, Room 1202, and will cover topics including the research and regulatory environment, sponsored projects policies, the life cycle of an award, and an overview of the Office of Sponsored Programs. The requirements of the certificate program will be reviewed, and there will be time for questions and answers.
