Dr. Helen Kiss and Mr. Ken Sleeper have recently joined the ORSP as Program Development Specialists (PDSs). They join Ms. Lesha Agnew in supporting UM faculty and staff who are seeking to enhance their research and scholarly activities. The PDSs serve as the first point of contact for UM faculty and staff interacting with the ORSP on a variety of topics, including identifying funding opportunities, applying for funding, receiving grants and contracts, completing reporting requirements for sponsored projects, and identifying other institutional resources that may help support research, education and scholarly activities.
With the addition of these two new staff members, we have made new departmental assignments. The new PDS/departmental assignments are located here:
Please contact your PDS with any questions related to funding opportunities, proposals, grants, contracts, reporting requirements, compliance issues or any other topic. Our goal is to serve the UM faculty and staff and to enhance the research and scholarly activity environment of the University.
