About the Office
The Office for Research and Sponsored Programs is located within the Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs on the second floor of the west wing of Axinn Library. Our business hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Universities play a special role in society. While our first obligation is of course to teaching, we are also leaders in research and in service to our communities.
The Office for Research and Sponsored Programs exists to assist faculty and others in pursuit of special efforts that can enrich the University's education, research and service endeavors. Our primary responsibility is to assist in securing financial support, usually in the form of peer-reviewed grants or contracts, thereby enabling the University to undertake new projects or expand or improve upon ongoing activities.
Our Office also provides a wide range of support services from assistance in the protection of intellectual properties to compliance with governmental regulations and award conditions, all to assure -- in a joint effort with faculty -- that the name Hofstra University stands for reliability and excellence in research and all other professional and scholarly pursuits.
In addition to this home page, the Office for Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) publishes a Funding Opportunities Newsletter available both in hard copy and online. The ORSP newsletter is published on an as-needed basis to assure that information regarding upcoming grant competitions reaches Hofstra faculty with minimal delay. We also publish Hofstra Horizons, a magazine featuring articles on the research and other scholarly pursuits of our Hofstra University faculty. Hofstra Horizons is published twice a year and is also available either in hard copy or online.
