Office of Research Development

The Office of Research Development (ORD) helps to connect researchers and funding opportunities. We also provide various kinds of proposal support services, and we oversee special program initiatives designed to enhance campus-wide research performance. Please contact us if you are:

  • wondering about how to find research funding opportunities
  • curious about the extramural funding landscape
  • thinking about preparing a competitive research proposal
  • interested in participating in a collaborative multi-investigator large-scale competitive proposal
  • hopeful that your draft proposal could get some advance review and feedback
  • wishing there was an opportunity for constructive debriefing of proposal outcomes
