What is OSPR?

We grow the university's portfolio by providing a high level of service to university faculty and staff members in identifying funding opportunities, developing project ideas into proposals and submitting complete and competitive proposals.

We manage awards and contracts alongside university faculty and staff to ensure proper administration of awards.

We protect the university's interests in all matters relating to external funding by complying with federal and state regulations.
