About the Office of Research

The Mission of the Office of Research (OOR) in THCAS is to support externally funded research and related activities among Arts and Sciences faculty while promoting College compliance with University and external research-related requirements. The OOR is at the front line to provide pre and post award services to arts and sciences faculty. A few of the services include pre award preparation of grant proposals, training in budget and proposal development and locating funding opportunities, coordinating intended participation of subcontractors, panel reviews, and more; and, communicating ECU policies and federal updates, rules and regulations.
