The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is responsible for supporting, coordinating, and organizing a share of external fundraising and awards acceptance on behalf of CGU, in cooperation with CGU's Office of Advancement. ORSP has the lead responsibility for negotiating, signing, and assisting faculty and staff in developing:
grant proposals to public agencies for academic research and/or training;
grant proposals that involve collaboration with other universities, colleges, medical organizations, or scholarly associations; and
all contract proposals and agreements for academic research, evaluation, and/or training.
Grant applications that are outside of these definitions are often supported and submitted by Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) staff in the Office of Advancement. For proposals or agreements that are not readily classified or for any questions about where to go for help with proposals, faculty or others are welcome to contact either ORSP or CFR for assistance.
