3.21 University Support

The Office of Sponsored Programs, http://osp.syr.edu/ the Office of Corporate Relations, and the Vice President for Research assist in the acquisition and administration of grants and awards for faculty research and instructional programs sponsored by outside agencies. The Office of Sponsored Programs must sign off on all such proposals.

Limited funds are available at the institutional level to assist new faculty members in initiating research projects. Requests for such support are made by submitting proposals through department chairpersons. (For details on some forms of University support, consult the Office of Sponsored Programs, http://osp.syr.edu/)

Syracuse University may enter into direct and indirect research contracts with intelligence agencies provided that such contracts conform to the University’s rules governing contracting with outside sponsors and that such contracts are made public by University officials.
