Research Administration Policies and Procedures

Research Administration Policies and Procedures Manual

Below are a number of policies and procedures that provide guidance for UNC Charlotte faculty and staff as they develop research proposals, conduct research, and manage awards. This manual is a work-in-progress that will eventually cover proposals and awards from “cradle-to-grave” (i.e., from proposal preparation to award closeout). As the topics below are finished, the linked documents will explain these policies and procedures and provide information about whom to contact with questions about each area.
