As a research administration staff member at NCSU, you may wish to participate in some Professional Development opportunities. Certified Research Administrator (CRA) certification, through Research Administrators Certification Council (RACC), conferences and webinars hosted by the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA), the Society of Research Administrators International (SRAI) and its local chapter – NCSRA offer many professional development opportunities throughout the year.
In addition, the offices of Sponsored Programs and Regulatory Compliance Services (SPARCS) and Contracts and Grants (C&G) offer topic-specific training tailored to your college or department, along with hosting federal sponsor and professional society webinars here at NCSU. If you are interested in having either SPARCS or C&G (or both) come to your college or department to talk with your staff / faculty on pre-award, post-award or regulatory compliance topics, please contact these training facilitators.
