The Office of Research provides research administration support to individual faculty and groups of faculty within the College of Education and the University to advance research and innovation initiatives and programs. To do that, the Office of Research is organized and staffed as a central, "One Stop Shop" to support all phases of the sponsored award life cycle, from the generation of an idea to the end of a sponsor funded program

Project Concept Form

The Office of Research encourages faculty and students to engage in individual, collaborative, and interdisciplinary inquiry, particularly to ensure continued improvement of COE's programs. The Office provides assistance to faculty and students in a variety of areas.

Project Proposal

The goal of a research proposal is to present and justify the need to study a research problem and to present the practical ways in which the proposed study should be conducted. The design elements and procedures for conducting the research are governed by standards within the predominant discipline in which the problem resides, so guidelines for research proposals are more exacting and less formal than a general project proposal. Research proposals contain extensive literature reviews. They must provide persuasive evidence that a need exists for the proposed study. In addition to providing a rationale, a proposal describes detailed methodology for conducting the research consistent with requirements of the professional or academic field and a statement on anticipated outcomes and/or benefits derived from the study's completion.
