Research Committees


Departmental Administrator Committee

Departmental Administrator Committee (DAC) was formed to increase engagement, training, and education of campus departmental research administrators.

DAC will participate in meetings and workshops to educate and update members on all matters of research administration, including changes in federal regulations and institutional policies, training, providing feedback to SBRO, and exchanging information about best practices. A LISTSERV will be established for day to day communication and requests for shared information. The goal is to increase efficiencies at all levels and to facilitate communication between and among departments and SBRO offices.
