(Aug. 31, 2012) -- The UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) announces the establishment of six (6) Research Service Centers (RSCs) to facilitate proposal submission and grant administration. The staffing of the RSCs was a collaborative effort between VPR management and researchers in the service areas. Each RSC will consist of a director who is well versed in pre- and/or post-award procedures and policies.
Each RSC also will include a Senior Research Award Coordinator and several Research Award Administrators (RAAs), who will directly assist researchers with the preparation, submission and post-award administration of awards. The RSCs will be located throughout the university, providing researchers with accessibility and improved communications. Each RSC will provide seamless cradle-to-grave research administration support including:
The Research Service Centers and their Directors and Senior Research Award Coordinators are:
It is expected that the staff in each RSC will develop strong working relationships with the researchers and staff in their service area and will be given the responsibility and authority to facilitate the work of researchers. Each research service center contains highly competent staff that will work in a collaborative fashion, yet exercising appropriate independent judgment for the oversight of sponsored projects in their service area. The staff of each research service center will collaborate with one another to solve problems and streamline paperwork and approval processes.
An open house will be scheduled in each RSC in the coming months. Notifications will be sent out once these are scheduled. Please take the opportunity to meet the staff of your RSC at these open house events.
The Office of the Vice President for Research will continue to provide updates on the implementation of other research enhancements over the coming weeks and months.
