The Dearborn Office of Research & Sponsored Programs
The office supports the efforts of the faculty, staff, and students of the University of Michigan-Dearborn in seeking, securing, and carrying out sponsored programs and its authority to do so is derived from the Provost and Chancellor of UM-Dearborn and the policies and procedures of the University of Michigan. The office works in collaboration with central administrative offices of the University of Michigan, such as the Ann Arbor Office of Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP), the University of Michigan Office of Research (UMOR), the Office of Contract Administration (OCA), and the Sponsored Programs Office (Finance).
Grant Proposal Development:
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs assists University of Michigan-Dearborn faculty and staff prepare and submit proposals for sponsored programs (also called "grants and contracts").
This office is the point of contact for all grant matters on the Dearborn campus and we are the liaison between Dearborn faculty and staff, external sponsors, and administrative offices in Ann Arbor. We assist faculty researchers and department administrators with grant administration, accounting, and other post-award issues.
We assist with oversight of research compliance matters such as human subjects protections (whether funded or un-funded research), export controls, conflict of interest, and reporting standards for Dearborn sponsored programs.
