Teresa McDevitt, Acting Assistant Vice President for Research

The Office of Research is directed by the Assistant Vice President for Research (AVPR), who is responsible for promoting the research, scholarship, and creative works of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Northern Colorado. Through advocacy, analysis, and collaboration, the AVPR fosters a climate of shared responsibility, compliance, and scholarly integrity; encourages disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarly activities across campus; and distributes funds to support grant writing, research, scholarly initiatives, and creative works. To accomplish these ends, the AVPR provides administrative support to the Office of Sponsored Programs; works collaboratively with leaders, faculty, and other members of Academic Affairs and the campus community; administers several incentive programs; and obtains the ongoing guidance of the Research Advisory Council.
