The Web-Based Sponsored Research Training serves as an introduction to the primary areas of interest for departmental administrators at the University. You are free to work at your own pace, and you can gauge your progress by means of quizzes at the end of each module. Upon completion of the program, you should have a working knowledge of the policies and procedures involved in submitting proposals and managing awards at the University.
Coffee with ORPA is a series of training sessions focusing on current issues in the field of sponsored research administration. Class sessions are generally offered monthly during the University’s academic year, with a different topic each month on an area of interest to departmental administrators. Led by ORPA staff, these sessions are a great way for departmental research administrators to stay up-to-date on the latest University and sponsor policies, as well as to network and meet administrators from other departments.
The On-Site Training Program provides the greatest flexibility and customization of all of ORPA’s training opportunities. With class sizes as small as two and an ever-growing list of topics to choose from, On-Site Training offers a more intimate setting and content specifically suited to each department’s needs. These sessions are appropriate for highly-experienced departments seeking clarification on a particular issue or less-experienced departments looking for a general introduction to the basics of sponsored research administration. And, the best part is, we will come to you!
