Sponsored Programs Accounting received the 2015 RIT Presidential Award for Outstanding Staff!
RIT honored employees for outstanding service and dedication to the university during its annual Presidential Awards for Outstanding Staff ceremony. Awards, presented Oct. 8 in Ingle Auditorium, were given based on commitment to student success; integrity and ethics; respect, diversity and pluralism; and teamwork and collaboration. One nomination form read, "The Sponsored Programs Accounting team is integral to the research component of the student experience at RIT. While their contribution is often in the background, it is of the utmost importance to the success of the university’s sponsored research program. Sponsor funds make it possible for faculty to pursue research initiatives and provide numerous opportunities for students such as graduate and undergraduate research assistantships, a variety of research experiences, co-ops and other student jobs.” In addition, “The accountants and analysts on the team serve as trusted points of contact for both the researchers on campus and the external sponsors. They are their allies in ensuring that the administrative and financial side of research projects is handled both accurately and promptly.”
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2015 SPARC Certification!
