RAC Program

The Research Administration Certificate Program for Administrators (RAC) is a comprehensive training and certification program designed to assist AU departmental and school/college level staff with research administration and/or grant/contract management responsibilities. The RAC program provides pertinent information to enable participants to effectively manage sponsored awards.

The RAC program consists of eight (8) consecutive sessions that will be offered throughout the academic year (Sept. – May). Each session lasts approximately two hours (depending on content). A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of all 8 RAC sessions and required quizzes.
