Research Administration and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Research Administration and Sponsored Programs (RASP), which falls within the Office of Research and Planning administrative umbrella, is dedicated to growing funded research at High Point University.  In addition to providing leadership and administrative oversight to the process of submitting grant proposals, RASP also monitors progress on all active grants and ensures institutional compliance with all federal, state, local, and university regulations.  In addition, RASP plays a central role in the operation of the Institutional Review Board, Institutional Biosafety Committee, and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, and works closely with academic programs on all aspects of sponsored research.
