Committee on Research (COR)
The Committee on Research (COR) reviews campus and systemwide research policies and issues related to the campus research mission. COR advises administrative entities that support faculty research (such as the Office of Research, the Office of Sponsored Projects, etc.) and makes recommendations on the establishment of Organized Research Units (ORUs). COR also directly supports the campus research enterprise by awarding Faculty Research Grants (FRGs), Special Research Grants (SRGs) and Scholarly Meeting Travel (SMT) grants on an annual basis. COR meets every other week.
