Research and scholarship are central features of any academic environment. At Slippery Rock University, faculty and students are active in a wide range of internally and externally funded projects that support the research, teaching and public service missions of the university. The Office of Grants, Research and Sponsored Programs (GRASP) is responsible for assisting faculty in the acquisition of external funding for scholarship, research, and other projects; representing the university in pre-award and award transactions with funding sponsors; acting as a liaison between project directors, sponsors, administration, and external groups; and assisting with post-award administration of grants and contracts to assure compliance with federal, state, and university directives. The office also provides the administrative oversight to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for ethical implementation of research projects involving human subjects and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to ensure that the animal housing, care, and use in research labs meets federal standards and guidelines.
