Administrators to assist sponsored research team

More than a dozen RIT administrators have signed on to enhance the university’s sponsored research initiatives.

The group recently completed Sponsored Programs Accounting and Regulatory Certification, allowing these individuals to assist principal investigators in managing externally funded projects. Forty hours of training, along with completion of an online assessment, is required for certification.

“This new initiative directly supports President Destler’s strategic mission to grow scholarship activity at the university through increased sponsored research,” says Jim Watters, senior vice president for finance and administration. “There are no other certification programs on campus requiring this level of training as well as the completion of a comprehensive assessment.”

Certification has been granted to Patricia Bullis, Deborah Calendine, Angela Dolliver, Susan Langschwager, Yancey Moore, Tammy Sharpstene and Jacqueline Taylor from the Controller’s Office; Kerry Hughes and Ricki Wensel from Student Affairs; Venessa Mitchell and Kathryn Stefanik from the Kate Gleason College of Engineering; Meredith Curran from the College of Science; and Debra Steene from the College of Liberal Arts.
