Spring 2009 Council Meeting
The Council on Grantsmanship and Research (CGR) met on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) on April 2, 2009. The SWOSU Office of Sponsored Programs hosted the Spring meeting. CGR has a meeting each Fall and each Spring. SWOSU Provost Blake Sonobe opened the meeting with a welcome to the CGR membership.
The mission of this Council is to provide a network of support to advance Grantsmanship and Research among Oklahoma’s undergraduate institutions of higher education. The Council discusses different external funding institutional policies and procedures, identifies potential funding sources and collaborative opportunities, analyzes funding trends, highlights barriers and opportunities to increase grantsmanship and research on Oklahoma campuses, and engages in professional development.
Guests presenters at the April 2nd meeting were Brian Lopina and Robert J. Horn of Patton Boggs LLP, attorneys at law, in Washington, D.C. They spoke on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Stimulus Funding Opportunities and how regional universities might participate.
Fifteen university administrators attended the spring meeting.
