Research Events Round-Up

The Office of the Vice Provost for Research & Scholarship gathers all the research events posted to our listservs into a once-weekly email, and we also feature them on our new online calendar. Check out our primer on how to promote your event or email for help.



More Classes Added and Deadline Extended

Research Administration at the U Curriculum

In an effort to allow research administrators to successfully complete the Research Administration at the U (RAU) curriculum, we have added additional classes and extended the deadline date to complete the mandatory program. The deadline date has been extended to August 31, 2023. These measures will allow individuals who have not started the curriculum to complete the program and maintain their system statuses. As I am sure you already know, new and current staff in a research administration role are required to complete the mandatory training courses of the RAU curriculum. Non-compliance will lead to loss of system access to IBISResearch, Workday Grants and other research-related systems.

Upon completion of the RAU curriculum participants will have a better understanding of research administration at the University of Miami and the tools to better manage day-to-day work tasks more effectively. In addition, participants will gain a better understanding of how their work affects compliance, reporting and the entire research enterprise at the University of Miami.
