The College has experienced a banner year in new external research, creative and training awards. Over the past five fiscal years, awards to CLAS faculty researchers has averaged 6 million dollars. As shown in the figure CLAS researchers were awarded over $7.8 million this past year. We received awards from NIH and NSF, the Boettcher Foundation, the National Writing Project, and the National Park Service among many other national agencies, private foundations and local partners.
The object of this web site is two-fold: for researchers, this site is intended to help you navigate through the grants and contracts process simply and intuitively by using a “life cycle” approach – from the birth of an idea, routing and grant submission/resubmission, award management, and ultimately, to award closeout; for visitors including prospective students, please have a look at our faculty projects section to learn more about the discovery, educational opportunities, business and technology linkages, and community service that is being facilitated through our faculty’s research endeavors.
Whether you are a current or prospective faculty member or student, we hope you will join us in our mission as the premier urban Research Institution in Denver to advance our state, nation and world through research, innovation, and creative activities.
The ORCA team: Stephanie Santorico, Interim Associate Dean for Research and Creative Activities, Carol Achziger, our Grants Development Coordinator, and Elizabeth Lee our Grant and Contract Post Award Administrator are available to assist you in any way you may need. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
