What We Do


Our mission is to provide comprehensive and high quality support services to faculty and staff to develop and secure external grants and contracts to implement effective research educational and public service programs in support of the institutional mission. We are your full service support office. Sponsored Research and Programs is the campus Office of the Research Foundation of SUNY which serves as the legal applicant and fiscal administrator for all grants and contracts awarded to SUNY institutions, faculty and staff.
