How Does Affiliation with OIBR Benefit Departments & Colleges?
Affiliation with OIBR benefits Departments and Colleges by (1) offering a formal mentoring program for faculty members, (2) organizing colloquia open to all University Faculty, (3) sponsoring faculty for internal and external awards, and (4) reducing departmental administrative burden through our comprehensive pre-award and post-award services. OIBR can also help Departments and Colleges with faculty recruitment and assist in the socialization of new faculty by offering a supportive intellectual environment for the pursuit of research. For grants submitted through the institute, 100% of the academic credit remains at the investigator’s home department. Indirect cost return is split 50/50 between the home department and OIBR. 100% of OIBR’s portion of the indirect cost return is returned to the investigator for use as discretionary research funds.
