Welcome to the the Office of Research, Sponsored Programs & Grants
We perform key functions for grants, contracts, and other research-related administration at CGU.
Our primary mission is to be the focal point for relationships with external sponsors, promote the ethical conduct of research, and seed local research initiatives.
The ORSPG performs pre-award and post-award activities. Pre-award activities include matching faculty expertise to funding opportunities and assisting them in preparing and submitting compliant applications for external support. In the pre-award phase, we also help negotiate sub-award contracts for sponsored projects, and advise grantees and other CGU offices regarding regulatory and compliance issues. Post-award activities focus on grants accounting, time effort reporting, report preparation and compliance. The office works with the Treasurer in negotiating indirect cost rates with the federal government. In addition, the office coordinates with Advancement’s Foundation Relations division to explore the full range of public and private funding opportunities.

Federal, state, and university regulations require that the use of human participants in research be reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB).
CGU is committed to the ethical treatment of research participants, to IRB procedures that comply with current federal regulations and with CGU guidelines and standards, and to help prepare students for roles as researchers in other institutions. An application that describes the proposed project and protections of research participants is an essential part of this effort. The IRB is available to advise and assist all faculty, students, and staff with this process.
At CGU, the IRB is responsible for the following:
- Reviewing research applications involving the use of human participants
- Providing certifications of review to funding agencies
- Receiving reports of adverse effects resulting from research with human participants
- Monitoring complaints from human participants
- Advising faculty, staff, and students on human participants review
