About Us

 

ORSP provides information, services, and support to members of the UALR community to enable them to compete successfully for outside funding to conduct scientific research; create works of art; compose music; write books and articles; improve their performance in the classroom; and better serve their students, professions, and the public. ORSP ensures accountability, compliance, and stewardship for sponsored programs as directed by all applicable federal, state, local, and institutional policies, procedures, and regulations.

In support of its mission, ORSP helps the campus community locate external funding sources; assists in budget development; performs proposal and contract review and submission; reviews, negotiates, and accepts awards; maintains oversight and support for awarded projects; and provides education, outreach, and professional development to UALR faculty and staff to advance research, instruction, and other sponsored activities at UALR.
