How can CLAS Research Support Services help me?

Research Support Services maintains staffing for pre and post award services. For tasks that you would find supported within your department and at the institutional level, we provide support and work with the departmental and institutional staff. We prepare proposal packages and assist with budget development, but we also develop and conduct training programs for staff and faculty on topics related to proposal development and submitting. We provide financial management assistance on existing awards, but we also develop and share tools that help staff and faculty with day to day administration of sponsored awards. We work directly with departmental administrative support staff, faculty, representatives in other departments and colleges, and groups external to the university as needed to support proposal development and award management. We can help in a lot of ways, just ask for what you need and we’re happy to help.
