University Research Council

In fiscal year 2013-2014, OSP convened a group of faculty from all units across campus to participate as University Research Council members.  The council meets once per semester to discuss various activities, policies, and topics that impact university stakeholders.  Direction received from the council is important in helping to inform OSP of faculty and leadership goals pertaining to research.
