The course is intended to provide participants with an overview of what sponsored projects are, how they are administered at KU, and who bears responsibility for seeing that they are administered responsibly. Many of the topics addressed are relevant to all sponsored projects, including research, educational service agreements, training grants, and public service projects. Some topics will be relevant to any research activity, regardless of whether or not it is externally funded.

Persons interested in qualifying for the certification offered with this program must attend one of the 2-hour overview sessions and a minimum of six of the eight issue-based hour-long sessions. Those who are unable to meet the minimum requirement may make up missed classes when they are offered the following year.
