The Graduate School's Office of Research and Projects (ORP) facilitates and manages faculty and staff research activities at SIUE. ORP Pre-Award personnel assist in proposal preparation, meeting agency deadlines for receipt of submitted proposals, approval of human subjects and animal care protocols for research, and dissemination of funding agency information, as well as manage various internal research competitions and funding sources.

The Post-Award function of the office oversees the post-award funding and the handling of required fiscal reports to the funding, governmental and other agencies. Personnel also work with the faculty and staff on managing their funding for research and other projects.
