About our Office

School of Education Research & Development is a unit within the Dean’s Office of the School of Education & Human Development (SEHD) tasked with strategically leveraging resources to increase SEHD’s research competitiveness. The Research Development team works directly with faculty, Institute administration, strategic partners and funders to facilitate research program funding and award management.

Our Office’s mission is to serve faculty researchers as you conceptualize, develop, and write your proposals to federal agencies and other entities to seek funding for your research projects. We work across all disciplines, departments, and divisions within the School of Education & Human Development with the overarching goal of making the proposal as compelling and competitive as possible — and of making the proposal development process as straightforward and streamlined as possible and ensuring that the management of your award is an easy and stress-free process.

In addition to the management and coordination of the Pre-Award process, CERD Post-Award will assist you with the coordination of award documentation and manage post-award financial activities.
