The Office of Sponsored Projects & Research Administration (OSPRA) has updated its name to better reflect its functions and is now the Office of Sponsored Projects & Research (OSPR). Please note that OSPR's website URL is now www.usi.edu/sponsored-projects.
OSPR is dedicated to promoting a supportive environment for research, scholarly, and creative endeavors of faculty and academic staff at USI. OSPR supports faculty and staff in their efforts to seek and secure extramural funding through research development and research administration. OSPR also monitors compliance of Federal, State, and University-related regulations, administers the review of human subjects research (IRB), provides grantsmanship, compliance, and responsible conduct of research training, and assists in non-financial post-award administration. We're here to help!
