The research administration, research compliance and research finance offices have successfully begun the implementation of their reorganization plan, which will ultimately align, coordinate and integrate their various regulatory and project management functions. Aligning functional areas of responsibility will provide better support for faculty and will enhance the team’s ability to better support the University’s diverse, expanding research portfolio.

Cross-functional organizational alignment is designed to improve the quality of research support services, enhance communication with faculty and college administrators; allowing an easier achievement of the universities collective research goals.

The team, in addition to being now physically co-located at 177 Huntington Avenue, is working on a number of process improvement initiatives designed to streamline processes, enhance compliance and promote a culture of research excellence.
