Research Service Center: Helping researchers meet their goals

Faculty members at the UTSA College of Engineering brought in more than ten million dollars of research funding to the university last year. Between assisting with proposals and serving as a liaison between a variety of different departments at UTSA, the Research Service Center (RSC) for Engineering plays an integral part in helping faculty researchers secure funds.

"The RSC strives to help, and not hinder, faculty in exceeding their research endeavors," said Amy Ossola-Phillips, director of the Research Service Center for Engineering. "We enjoy learning about COE research areas and the diligent work that faculty members are doing. When our researchers excel, it instills a high level of gratification among the RSC team and that pushes us to continuously improve."

The RSC for Engineering is one of six research service centers across UTSA. All of the RSCs are housed under the Office of Sponsored Project Administration (OSPA), one of the units under the Offices of the Vice President for Research. Each RSC is housed within a particular college or unit and provides a number of services to faculty, including:

Each and every member of the RSC is here because of our COE researchers," said Ossola-Phillips. "The COE researchers make such an impact on us, and in turn, we exercise all effort to help researchers meet their goals."

The members of the RSC in Engineering have varying levels of research administration experience and work together to assist researchers with the sponsored program needs, said Ossola- Phillips.

The team is currently in the process of creating an RSC Impact Board.

"This board will consist of notes, emails, letters, etc. that we received when providing outstanding service to our researchers," Ossola-Phillips said. "The board will be displayed outside of the RSC and will also consist of paper and pens in the event anyone wants to drop by and write a note on excellent service received from the RSC that truly created an impact. We are looking forward to a great year and feel very blessed to work with the College of Engineering."
