The mission of the Sponsored Research Office (SRO) at Lewis & Clark College is to provide faculty and staff with professional and quality service in support of research and creative endeavors throughout their careers. This includes the acquisition and administration of external funds to support their scholarship. Please contact us early so we can help!
The Sponsored Research Office helps identify funding opportunities, aids in proposal and budget development, and facilitates final submission. The SRO provides support for individual, collaborative, and institutional proposals.
The SRO team works with faculty and staff throughout the life cycle of a funded project, from award set up to closeout. The SRO helps ensure financial compliance with both award terms and conditions and institutional requirements.
Research Integrity and Compliance
Lewis & Clark is committed to maintaining high standards of integrity in research and scholarship, whether externally funded or not. The SRO is a resource for research compliance with institutional policies, applicable regulations, and required training.
