The Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Services (OSPRS) serves as the stewards of the University's research portfolio, responsible for ensuring that all proposals and awards comply with university, state, federal and sponsor regulations, policies and procedures. In addition, as the office responsible for the ethical and regulatory oversight of human research protection, the OSPRS administers, supports and guides the work of the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

As a part of Research and Emerging Initiatives, the OSPRS team provides comprehensive services to faculty, staff and graduate students to identify, pursue and manage external funding for research, instructional projects, training and public services opportunities.
