Research Administration Essentials

Research Administration Essentials Workshop Series

Research Administration Essentials workshops are designed to assist those involved in the administration of research grants for the University of Nebraska.

The Fall 2020 Research Administration Essentials series begins in September. The complete schedule is listed here or you can register here to reserve your space.

Due to COVID-19, all Fall 2020 sessions will be delivered only via Zoom. An email will be sent to participants prior to the respective classes with Zoom session access information.


Research Administration Essentials e-Learning Library

Our library of e-modules consists of short (10-15 minute) narrated PowerPoint presentations on a variety of topics related to research and research administration at the university. Many of these are still branded with NURAMP, but the information is valid. While the e-modules can stand alone, they work best in combination with each other or with participation in Research Administration Essentials classroom workshops to create a richer learning experience. Find the e-Learning Library here.
