Director's Message

I am excited about our ability to provide our faculty with the support they need in all aspects of pre-award and post-award research administration services.  Our faculty and their research success is our primary focus.  In this new structure we will continue to provide knowledgeable and dedicated services based on the RAS defined roles and responsibilities.  Our staff has a tremendous amount of pre and post award knowledge as well as many years of research experience.  With these skills the team is able to provide excellent customer service as well as serve as a trusted resource in the area of research administration. 

Our mission is aligned with RAS Central Operations.  We are committed to providing ongoing customer-focused, consistent, compliant, cost-effective, collaborative and continuously improved services to our faculty.
