Who We Are

The Research Support Council (RSC) is the research administration staff component of the Vice Chancellor’s research committees. Representatives from Office of Research and Innovation’s SPARCS, Finance’s Contracts and Grants, college research offices, departments, and centers and institutes communicate and clarify external and internal research policy and work to address research education needs. The RSC meets bi-monthly and is led by an Executive Committee, which meets on the alternate months
