The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs
From the Vice President for Research/ Dean of Graduate Studies
Welcome to the Office of Research which is headed by the Vice President for Research and Dean of Graduate Studies, who reports to the president of the university through the Provost. The Office is responsible for the development and implementation of aggressive plans to insure that Tuskegee University’s research capability and annual research funding from federal agencies and other sources are substantially enhanced and making sure that Tuskegee University is in complete compliance with state and federal regulations in implementing research and other sponsored programs.
Since its creation in 1996, the Office of Research has more than doubled its annual funding for research and other sponsored programs. Tuskegee University’s annual funding for Research and other Sponsored Programs currently ranges from $40 to $45 million. Credit for this enormous success goes to faculty members and staff, who continue to search for resources and write winning proposals. The staff members in the Division of Research and Sponsored Programs and various departments of Business and Fiscal Affairs are also to be commended for their enthusiastic support of the researchers in the grantsmanship process. These grants and contracts not only allow us to fulfill the research mission of Tuskegee University but also make a huge impact on our academic programs. Tuskegee University’s four Ph.D. programs are prime examples of programs that are offered solely based on the expertise and resources developed by the faculty members.
