Our Mission

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs promotes transformational learning through its support of research, creative an scholarly activities at UCO.

Research enhances critical thinking skills and provides hands-on experience for students entering the job market or advanced degree programs. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs coordinates and administers a variety of opportunities for faculty & students to be involved in research, creative and scholarly activities.

The Faculty On-Campus Grant Program encourages a continuum of research, creative, and scholarly activities by faculty at UCO with the intent of providing funding for faculty members to develop research projects with internal funds.
