Faculty Development

RESP is engaged on multiple fronts in supporting the development of faculty programs in research, scholarly, creative and service activities.  We hold workshops and seminars and provide presentations on facilitating research, such as the New Faculty Orientation each fall semester, New Faculty Research Breakfast, Grant Writing Bootcamp, funders/sponsors workshops, visits to colleges and departments, as well as hands-on assistance in locating funding sources.

Several internal research funding opportunities are run through RESP, including the CSU Research, Scholarly and Creative Activities (RSCA) awards and other programs such as the Research Stimulation Grant (RSG) and Faculty Development Awards.  The RSCA opportunity occurs at least once a year, while the other programs occur periodically dependent upon available funding.
