Director of Research
The Office of Research was created in 1992 and appointed its first Director in 1993. As Research has grown in scope and importance to all Schools at SGU so the Office of Research (OR) has grown commensurately. The Director of the Office of Research leads the functions of the office and reports to the Panel on Research and Scholarly Activity (PRSA) on all policies and other matters related to Research at the University. The PRSA was set up in 1992, is chaired by the Provost and the membership includes all Deans, faculty and student members, and the IRB and IACUC chairs. Policies approved by the panel are forwarded to the Administration of the University for ratification.
