The Office of Proposal Development was established to maintain a strong internal resource in grant writing by ensuring faculty meet sponsor guidelines, providing feedback about the content, and visual appeal of the proposal. The office provides a variety of grantsmanship, grant writing, and proposal development among other services. The Office of Proposal Development works closely with the Director of Research Development and Infrastructure, school deans, institutes and with individual faculty. One major function of this office is to assist faculty with the development of large-dollar center initiatives to assist with the burden in preparing these proposals while increasing the quality and quantity of these submissions. The website provides useful information to assist our faculty access resources and acquire skills and knowledge to identify funding opportunities, plan research projects and a variety of other services.
