The Office of the Dean for Research offers specialized, professional services for the brainstorming, planning, and development of large-scale, collaborative projects. Our staff can ensure that from the earliest stages of a project concept to seeking funding, your project team is supported in preparing a highly competitive proposal. Your team will benefit from our staff’s competitive intelligence, background research on a particular agency’s funding strategies, outreach to program officers, proposal development support, and other efforts that ensure your project is well-matched to a particular funding opportunity.

  • We support the entire continuum of research development and funding
  • Engage us in brainstorming at the earliest conceptual stages
  • Involve us in your long-term vision and portfolio planning
  • Call us early and often!


Researchers and teams seeking support are encouraged to reach out to Research Development Strategist Mary Sym.
