Dear friends and colleagues,

Despite the challenges encountered in spring quarter, you have kept us busy, and inspired, with 25 proposal submissions and by quickly adapting our 80 active sponsored projects to the virtual environment. Though much of our planned spring programming was postponed, we are grateful to have hosted our first virtual Faculty Happy Hour, “Continuing Scholarship in the Time of Crisis?” with the Center for Faculty Development in May (more below here) and piloted a new “Speed Dating” event with the School of Law in June (more below here). As we begin to plan for the 2020-21 academic year, I invite you to complete a short survey to help us understand how we can best support you in grant-seeking and managing awards. Finally, I want to thank all faculty who expressed interest in serving on our OSP Advisory Board and look forward to welcoming our first full, 12-member committee in the fall. OSP staff continues to be available virtually throughout the summer– please don’t hesitate to contact us! Wishing you a restful summer.
