The Office of Research, Innovation and Collaboration is charged with assisting faculty, staff, and students in their efforts to promote and secure sponsored research funding, and oversees the following administrative units.

Environmental Health, Safety and Compliance
This unit provides services to promote health and safety, environmental programs, and regulatory compliance. Our unit offers services in the areas of chemical, biological, occupational, and radiation safety as well as environmental stewardship.

Evaluation, Monitoring and Data
This unit supports the development and improvement of STEM student-centered programs and offices initiatives at the College. In particular, grant-funded programs supported by state or federal agencies often are required to include a program evaluation component.

Research Development & Sponsored Programs
This unit provides faculty and administrative staff with guidance and technical assistance to identify, secure, and administer grant funding in support of research, creative scholarship, student research training, and programmatic initiatives.

Undergraduate Research and Training Programs (URTP)
This unit is primarily responsible for the coordination of all undergraduate research and creative pursuits at the College and for the development of strategies to increase student involvement in scholarly activities. The URTP office will work collaboratively with faculty, staff, and students to support the scholarly engagement of undergraduates from all divisions through activities such as mentor pairing, professional development workshops, RCR (Responsible Conduct in Research) Training, Research Day planning, and student research activity data collection.
