Our mission is to enhance the sponsorship of research and creative activity of faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences. Working in concert with the University at Buffalo offices of Sponsored Projects Services and the Office of Research Advancement, we provide professional training, guidance and administrative support to faculty and staff pursuing external funding for research, service and scholarly activities.
We also work with faculty to secure funding for facilities and equipment. We assist faculty in building collaborative research teams who are pursuing convergent research projects. In addition, we manage several College-specific funding initiatives that stimulate faculty scholarship and creative activity.
