About Research Development Services

Research Development Services (RDS) supports faculty to help increase externally-funded research activity at the university.  Our services are designed to meet the unique needs of faculty across disciplines and career stages. 

We help researchers identify funding opportunities and develop compelling, competitive proposals through a variety of resources, trainings, and customized assistance. RDS also manages the internal award programs funded by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation and serves as the central coordinator for external, limited submission competitions.
