9:10am - Research Administration Training Program

Nicole Joyce, representing the Office of Research Affairs, will be presenting on the new Research Administration Training Program.  This presentation will provide an introduction and overview of the program and focus on the training program structure and timeline.

After the presentation, participants will be able to understand the following:

  • Purpose and objectives of the program
  • Justification of how the program came about
  • Deliverables and scope of the project as it relates to the programs short term and long term goals
  • Training program structure as it relates to the new HR Career Tracks Sponsored Research Administrator career path and the broad timeline of deliverables
  • How success of the program will be measured
  • Resources used to complete the short term deliverables and perceived risks 

The benefits of this cohesive Research Administration Training Program are that it will reduce cost and administrative burden on departments and central offices from having to develop and maintain it, avoid duplicative and conflicting information and minimize subject matter expert (SME) training resource drain/over allocation.

9:40am - Student Petition Process

Ray Rodriguez, Academic Senate Director, and Lori Hullings, Associate Director, will provide a briefing on the Senate’s plans to convert the student petition process from a paper to electronic format.
