Office of Sponsored Research and Programs (OSRP) is part of the Division of Research and Economic Development (DRED). Research activities are carried out through two major research institutes, Julius L. Chambers Biomedical/Biotechnology Research Institute (BBRI), and, The Golden Leaf Foundation Biomanufacturing Research Institute and Technology Enterprise (BRITE). In addition to the two major research institutes, NCCU offers academic degrees through its two colleges (College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences) and four schools (School of Business, School of Education, School of Library and Information Sciences and School of Law), which are intimately involved in ongoing research activities.
OSRP is a one-stop shop comprised of eight staff members who include one director, one assistant director, one pre award research administrators, and five post award research administrators. Our purpose is to foster an environment which encourages research, scholarly inquiry and creative activities by the faculty through technically assisting in the acquisition of extramural funding.
