Welcome to RSP!
The Research and Sponsored Programs office (RSP) manages all grants and contracted ("sponsored") programs for the University. Our pre-award liaisons assist investigators with identifying and interpreting funding opportunities, proposal development and submission, and award receipt. Through our partnership with The University Corporation, post-award liaisons at TUC set up award accounts, manage all awards, and assist with contract extensions and closeouts. As the entity responsible for ensuring compliance with all federal, state, local, and CSU system-wide laws and requirements, the RSP office also manages activities related to research integrity and intellectual property and has administrative oversight of all campus Centers and Institutes. To learn more about any of these areas, please visit the links above. We also encourage you to reach out to our office via any of the methods in the "Contact" sidebar.
