About ORSP

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) supports faculty, students, and staff engaged in externally and internally funded research, scholarship, and creative activities (RSCA). ORSP provides comprehensive pre- and post-award assistance covering the entire lifecycle of an award, from finding funding and proposal development to award administration and closeout, and is responsible for Sonoma State University’s (SSU) institutional research compliance. ORSP strives to ensure accountability, compliance and good stewardship for sponsored programs, to further SSU's mission supporting student success, and to promote a culture on campus that values RSCA. Please take a look at the ORSP Strategic Plan 2019-25 to better understand our mission and goals.
