The Office of Research Services and Sponsored Projects (ORSSP) assists faculty and staff in the pursuit of external funding opportunities. Our goal is to provide effective and efficient support and services throughout the life of all sponsored agreements (pre-award, post-award, and close out). We also strive to ensure compliance with federal regulations and requirements as well as with policies, procedures, and guidelines at Seattle University.
COS Pivot. We are pleased to announce the launch of a new tool for SU faculty, staff, and students interested in searching for sponsored funding to support research, workshops, creative activities, equipment acquisition, etc. COS Pivot is the industry leader in web based sponsored research search engines and is designed specifically for university faculty and staff. While on campus, Pivot can be used without creating an account or logging in as you will have universal access from anywhere on campus. Off campus you will need to have an account to log in. To create a new account, go to http://pivot.cos.com, click "log in", select "login help" at the upper right of the screen and choose "create an account." Make sure that you associate your account with Seattle University. To learn more about using Pivot and the support and training tools that are available, please click here.
