Let’s face it. Nothing boosts a resume and shows leadership in your field like conducting research. That’s why the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is here to support you through a variety of services.


We want to see you succeed. That’s why we’ve started a mentorship program that provides access to research clubs where you can connect with others who know the process. Whether it’s your first time researching or hundredth time researching, this club can help demystify those parts of the process that are difficult.


Costs involved with research don’t have to be a burden. ORSP offers student grant money that picks up the costs associated with conducting and disseminating research.


There are multiple opportunities to get your hard work recognized. In addition to providing grant money that helps you get to conferences where you can present, ORSP hosts Research Day. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encourage to apply for Research Day to get their research posters seen. Research Day is an opportunity to earn recognition in the form of awards that look stellar on your resume. In addition, our office coordinates with The Journal of Student Research to help get your published.

IRB Help

Our office processes IRB applications, and helps busy students by ensuring they have all the required information.

Help from Experienced Researchers

Okay, we have a confession: we’re research nerds. Full-blown, stereotypical research-loving nerds who love to talk about research. So, if you feel stuck in the research process, come talk to us. We’re located in VOCR 152 and open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
