The Office of Research is responsible for promoting, supporting, and expanding the research mission within the CSOM. 

The office assists faculty in obtaining and managing external federal, state, and private foundation funding and works with the CCNY Office of Research Administration to provide faculty with administrative support for grant submission.

The office facilitates the mentoring of junior faculty, provides workshops on grant writing, and helps to identify funding opportunities for faculty. 

The office provides faculty with pre and post-award services. Pre-award services include identifying potential external funding, preparing budgets and other sponsor forms, interpreting sponsor guidelines, and handling subcontract issuance and negotiations.

Post-award services include providing guidance on Research Foundation account management, assisting with sponsor agency requirements and documentation, budget modifications, and no cost extensions, and preparing annual reports.

The Interim Associate Dean for Research oversees the Office of Research and works closely with the CCNY Associate Provost for Research and the CSOM Dean on strategic initiatives to develop research and graduate educational initiatives and on issues regarding regulatory oversight and compliance. The research program specialist assists faculty by providing pre and post award services.
