Your Portal to Research Resources and Services

Research, scholarly and creative activities (RSCA) comprise an essential foundation at the University. RSCA carried out by faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, and students contributes in multiple ways to the academic and societal missions of CSU Chico, and produces important benefits regionally, nationally and internationally.

  The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RESP)

RESP serves the university’s research community and its partners, emphasizing a high level of support in pursuing, securing, and managing funded projects and programs.  From the beginning stages (e.g., grant proposal development, contracts, risk management) and following through the project life-cycle (e.g., fiscal management, federal compliance), RESP is your central (“one-stop”) portal for research engagement, facilitation and implementation at Chico State.
