NYU's Administration is committed to providing faculty, research staff and administrative support staff with the tools necessary to perform the various research administration functions required to ensure the responsible stewardship of extramural funds.

Central support units, including the Office of Sponsored Programs and Contract Office, and Sponsored Programs Administration, partner to assess the needs of our campuses and to develop and offer opportunities for training and professional development.

The goal of RAA is to develop a comprehensive, multi-level training program for NYU research administrators that provides participants with a core set of competencies for effective sponsored projects management.  For more information please see the RAA Slides from the May 2022 RA Forum.

The goal of RAD is to provide information/knowledge sharing for all research administrators.  New research administrators could utilize RAD as part of their new employee onboarding, while veteran research administrators could utilize RAD for their continued learning.  *All RAD sessions are taught by national-level, expert presenters and are free ($0) to participants.

The Research Administrators (RA) Forum meets regularly to share updates with the NYU research community about research administration and compliance initiatives and best practices.
