What does Research Administration look like at NC State?

NC State University is a public R1 land grant institution. An R1 institution is classified as a doctoral university with very high research activity. A land-grant college or university is an institution that has been designated by its state legislature or Congress to receive the benefits of the Morrill Acts of 1862, 1890, and 1994.

Research administration is decentralized at NC State. NC State has ten colleges and several non-academic units which are organized in varying structures. Some colleges have research administration centralized at the college level, some colleges have it decentralized, and some have a hybrid of the two. Faculty work with their department/college/unit to submit proposals and manage awards. Central offices handle some submissions, awards negotiations, prior approvals, invoicing and financial management.
