Conducting Research at UND
The University expects faculty/staff to continue their professional development through active participation in research and other scholarly pursuits.
Since the University resources available for such activities are limited, the University encourages faculty/staff to solicit and obtain funds from potential sponsoring agencies, such as federal and state government, private foundation, industry and business.
This external support is generally awarded as grants, contracts, or cooperative agreements, with the University of North Dakota as the responsible fiscal agent.
A faculty or staff member is named as Principal Investigator (PI), and is responsible for conducting the instructional, research or service project in accordance with the conditions of the award.
Two offices exist to facilitate the process of obtaining extramural funding and administering awards that are received: Office of the Vice President for Research & Economic Development and the Grants & Contracts Administration (GCA) office.
