Dear Deans, Directors and Department Heads,
This year, for the first time, Research, Innovation and Graduate Education (RIGE) is sponsoring a faculty orientation session. This session is designed to assist both new and current faculty with accessing services that will aid them with their research careers here at UO.
RIGE Orientation will be led by Moira Kiltie, Assistant Vice President for Research
and divisional Chief of Staff, and include brief presentations from the Graduate School, Research Development Services, Sponsored Project Services, Research Compliance Services (e.g. information on IRB and IACUC), Innovation Partnership Services as well as a brief overview of our electronic proposal clearance (EPCS) system which routes externally sponsored activity proposals for proper review and authorization.
Our objective is to ensure that all of our new and current faculty members are aware of the services and staff who are here to assist with their research activities.
RIGE Orientation will be held on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 from 1:00 – 3:30pm. All faculty members are encouraged to attend. Please register for this session by contacting Research Development Services, [email protected] or 541-346-8308. Once registered, faculty members will receive a confirmation and details about the session. Space is limited so please contact our office soon.
Please share this information with your current faculty and with new faculty members who will join your departments for the 2013-2014 academic year.
