The College of Arts and Sciences Office of Research (CAS OOR) supports faculty research, scholarship, and artistic achievement.

We help faculty: develop external grant and fellowship proposals that meet internal and external guidelines and deadlines, navigate proposal development within the Cayuse system, and coordinate grant administration and accounting.

We provide limited financial support for: research-related travel, peer review of draft proposals, and pilot research to strengthen proposals.

We also conduct workshops and training for faculty and provide individual consultation. Learn more.
