Office of Research
Welcome to the Office of Research
The Office of Research oversees many functions, all in support of the Cal Poly Pomona Teacher-Scholar Model. These functions include supporting applications for external contracts and grants (through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs - ORSP), helping to ensure research compliance (Institutional Review Board - IRB for human and Animal Care and Use Committee - ACUC), support for the Office of Undergraduate Research, and support for the Technology Transfer/Industry Clinic. We also provide oversight of the many University Centers and Institutes and administer various intramural awards to support research, scholarly and creative activity by faculty and students.
Intramural awards that we administer include, for example, RSCA awards, the Provost Teacher-Scholar Program and Strategic Interdisciplinary Research Grants (SIRG). We also work closely with the Faculty Center for Professional Development and with the post-award Grants and Contracts office to better serve faculty, staff, and students from across the university.
