About our Office

College of Education Research & Development is a unit within the Dean’s Office of the College of Education & Human Development (CEHD) tasked with strategically leveraging resources to increase CEHD’s research competitiveness. The Research Development team works directly with faculty, Institute administration, strategic partners and funders to facilitate research program funding and award management.

Our Office’s mission is to serve faculty researchers as you conceptualize, develop, and write your proposals to federal agencies and other entities to seek funding for your research projects. We work across all disciplines, departments, and divisions within the College of Education & Human Development with the overarching goal of making the proposal as compelling and competitive as possible — and of making the proposal development process as straightforward and streamlined as possible and ensuring that the management of your award is an easy and stress-free process.

In addition to the management and coordination of the Pre-Award process, CERD Post-Award will assist you with the coordination of award documentation and manage post-award financial activities.

The CERD pre and post-award staff are happy to meet with you in your office to discuss any questions you have about your submission, project account, or outreach activities. Contact us.

How do I buyout of a course?

How do I buyout of a course?
May 21, 2018 whollis

Faculty with a portion of their FTE funded from extramural projects may arrange to ‘buy out’ of courses at the rate of 10% of their 9-month annual base salary (capped at $10,000) per 3-hour course. They must still meet department-determined minimum teaching load requirements and must specify the area in which that percentage of their time will be reallocated (e.g., research/project administration, service). Faculty may only use buy-outs to reduce their course instruction loads and must continue to fulfill their ongoing service, student advising, and administrative duties. Buy-outs cannot be used to reduce one’s overall work effort or be construed as approval for a full-time research appointment.  Effective January 1, 2018.
