At the University of Northern Colorado, research, scholarship, and creative works represent significant discoveries in the public interest. In my role as Assistant Vice President for Research & Executive Director of Sponsored Programs (acting), I am honored to support the creation of new knowledge and its application to our local, state, national, and international communities.
I encourage you to take a few minutes to read about the amazing accomplishments of our faculty, staff, and students. You can also find out how you can benefit from the services of the Office of Sponsored Programs and collaborating units on campus and, if you can, support insightful research, scholarship, and creative works.
