The Office of Research, Scholarship, and Innovation (ORSI) provides fiducial stewardship and compliance oversight for external grants and sponsored programs. We also champion the dynamic and innovative work being done by Nazareth faculty, staff, and students through a variety of efforts, including:

  • Internal funding opportunities for faculty and students that support a range of scholarly pursuits
  • Creation and implementation of faculty development opportunities around scholarship and grant-seeking
  • Communication and celebration of active grant awards and sponsored projects 
  • Support of the Boyer model of faculty scholarship
  • Collaboration with campus partners in support of interdisciplinary, interprofessional, curricular, and co-curricular projects
  • Leadership and infrastructure for student research initiatives
  • Recognition and celebration of student achievement at the annual Creative Activity and Research Showcase (CARS) 
  • Workshops and trainings for faculty and staff on grant writing, searching for funding (databases), post-award compliance, etc. 

We have a number of exciting initiatives coming in the near future, one of which is a reorganizing/updating of our website. As things may move around over the next couple of months (and always), if you have any questions at all, please contact us!
