Office Mission

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is committed to providing exceptional service to, and support of, Xavier University’s Researchers. Our mission is to grow, support and safeguard Xavier’s research enterprise, allowing Investigators to be successful in their sponsored research initiatives. Through communication that is frequent, clear, consistent and accurate, we strive to be an effective resource to all of our internal and external constituencies.

The ORSP provides services in four general categories: information collection and dissemination, administration of pre- and post-award activities, facilitation of technology transfer, and the oversight and support of University compliance activities.
