- ORSP provides funding and administrative support for internal, external and UW system grants and programs, professional development, and sabbatical leave projects.
- ORSP promotes faculty and academic staff professional development by presenting and mentoring in the areas of grant writing, faculty-student research collaboration, and strategic planning for scholarly success.
- ORSP sponsors colloquia and celebrations to highlight faculty and staff research, publications, and grant seeking.

ORSP offers one-on-one consultations for faculty and staff related to external grant-seeking, internal funding proposals, student research mentoring, and strategic career planning. This complements consultations by CETL, focused on success in teaching and learning. For help with research design and SPSS data analysis, request a Collegiate Consultation.
