The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) provides a supportive, proactive, and dynamic environment for conducting research projects and sponsored programs by:
- Stimulating interests in the intellectual life of the AU community;
- Encouraging creative approaches to the development of new opportunities;
- Promoting interdisciplinary and interdepartmental cooperation; and
- Fostering the enrichment of students and teaching.
OSP is committed to reducing the administrative burden on faculty, administrators, and staff by providing efficient, effective and personal service.
