Office of Research & Sponsored Programs

RSP Fall 2020 Calendar Now Available

The Fall Calendar for Research & Sponsored Programs is now available! With sessions of interest for faculty, staff, and students alike, we are offering a wide array of events for the Fall semester to serve the UNI campus community.

A few highlights:

  • 2020 Research Roundtables - Taking the place of our annual Scholarship Connexus for 2020, these virtual roundtables are an exciting new opportunity to network with UNI colleagues. Participants will have a chance to give a short presentation on their scholarship as well as participate in themed breakout sessions. Registration information will be forthcoming at If you have immediate questions, please contact Rebecca Rinehart at

  • IRB Learning Tutorials/Discussion Sessions - Held by IRB Chair Todd Evans, these individualized tutorial sessions are designed to explain the UNI IRB submission and review process within the context of the needs of attendees, their research plans, and preparation of their IRB materials. (Please note that these sessions are separate from the IRB training requirement for researchers.) 

  • Grants & Contracts Training and Workshops - Provided by the Research & Sponsored Programs office staff, these trainings provide an open forum for investigators and administrative staff with experience in award management. All trainings will be available as Zoom virtual sessions with recordings also available on the RSP website.
