The Summerville Interdisciplinary Research Office (SIRO) is pleased to provide this easy to use resource for faculty and staff to find information to aid in their professional growth and development related to research.

Our office reaches across colleges, to assist researchers on all campuses in learning about research practices and to find collaborative groups. This will also be a source for introducing faculty to the SIRO where we help to identify funding opportunities, develop proposals, and manage post award for grants, as well as oversight for the conduct of research project and/or contract.
