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.

Should I request a reduction in indirect costs?

Should I request a reduction in indirect costs?
November 7, 2016 admin

Requests to waive or reduce the Indirect Cost Rate on a proposal budget must receive VPR approval.  To request a waiver of Indirect Cost, the PI must prepare a justification and submit to the CERD pre award office (Ann Savell or Jason Foley) or to the SRS pre award contact (Laura Hill or Dennis Hoyle).  The waiver will be entered and routed through Maestro.  The off-campus rate should only be used if instructed by the sponsor or if more than 51% of the work is to be preformed off-campus.  Your proposal will not be submitted to the sponsor without prior approval of the IDC waiver, so please start this process early.  See link for Acceptable Explanations for IDC waivers.
