Office of Scholarship & Sponsored Projects (OSSP)

The Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects (OSSP) supports Pacific University’s faculty, students, and staff in their endeavors to conduct scholarly work, engage in responsible and ethical research and scholarship, and to secure  funding for research and scholarly inquiry. This support allows Pacific’s community members to engage in discovery in all of its forms and to fulfill all aspects of the University’s mission.

Research Integrity and Compliance: The Research Integrity and Compliance Office focuses on ensuring the responsible conduct of research and compliance in regulated research. This includes administering the university's three research-related regulatory committees; providing training and resources on research regulations and compliance; administering policies relates to research, including conflict of interest disclosures; overseeing research misconduct responses and reporting; and serving as the university's liaison with external research-related regulatory agencies.

Research Development: OSSP is your first stop in searching or applying for external funding for research or scholarly endeavors. OSSP helps scholars and researchers with project planning, funding databases, individual consultations, workshops and webinars, career mentoring, academic writing resources, research development news and sponsor updates, and connects scholars and researchers with subject matter experts and scholar networks.

Pre- and Post-Award Services: OSSP provides pre-award and post-award research administration support and services for external sponsored projects at Pacific University. Among these services, the OSSP team assists scholars and researchers in preparing proposals; reviews and submits applications; negotiates and accepts awards, subawards, and contracts on behalf of researchers and the university; manages subrecipient monitoring; facilitates new project team orientations; assists with material transfer and data use agreements; coordinates with other institutions in administering collaborative projects; works with sponsors on post-award requests, joins with other university offices to help PIs with products of research and scholarship; and guides PIs and Project Directors through award close out processes.
