Sponsored Programs & Research Compliance

Welcome to the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance (SPARC). The office supports research through submission, negotiation, and administration of externally sponsored programs and ensures compliance with institutional and sponsor regulations. We offer services to assist faculty in all stages of grant development, from concept to award.

Researchers and research administrators will find resources in SPARC to support and promote their work—from finding funding, submitting proposals, managing grants and contracts, to regulatory compliance information, patenting, licensing and starting new companies. SPARC staff are committed to helping you every step of the way.
