Research and Sponsored Programs

The Office for Research and Sponsored Programs assists 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. Additionally, our Office 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. We work closely with the Office of Financial Affairs to ensure sound management of post awards activities on research and grant initiatives.
