Proposals for New Organized Research and Training Units


Proposals for new ORTUs should be sent to the GS&R Committee via the Associate Dean of GS&R.  It is recommended that authors allow sufficient lead time before submission of their proposals for obtaining a preliminary review from the Associate Dean. 

Proposals should be organized according to, and follow the stipulations contained within, the ORU Guidelines below.  A budget template is included with the Guidelines to be used for reporting a 5-year financial estimate.  Once received, the proposals will be reviewed by the Associate Dean and the GS&R Committee with reference to the ORU Checklist, also included with the Guidelines.
