School of Architecture and Planning Research and Scholarly Activities

Welcome to the School of Architecture and Planning (SA•P) Research Office.  Our mission is to support, develop and advocate research and scholarship here at SAAP. 

We provide the following services:

  1. Funding search.  Meet with our team and let us know what type of research/activities you are interested in pursuing.  We will search the PIVOT database, internal funding opportunities and other possible sources to identify possible funding opportunities for you.
  2. External and Internal Proposal/Budget development.  Once an opportunity has been identified, our office will support your efforts to develop a responsive proposal.  We will work with you to develop the budget and complete the required internal forms in order to submit your proposal.
  3. Award processing.  If you receive funding, out office works with the Office of Sponsored Projects and the Contract and Grant Accounting to ensure your funding is processed for you.
  4. Training/Seminar opportunities.  The Research Office provides informational training/seminar opportunities for faculty on a wide range of topics.  If you have any suggestions on future seminars, please contact Mark Childs @ .
