Research Administrator Network Listserv

Every year, the university’s researchers secure millions of dollars from various foundation, state, and federal sponsors, each with its own set of rules and requirements. Research administrators are charged with helping investigators interpret university and sponsor requirements and with helping investigators ensure proper stewardship of research funds.

The University of Texas at Austin has research administrators located in numerous offices across its main and satellite campuses. The Office of Sponsored Projects maintains a Research Administrator Network listserv dedicated to disseminating timely research-related information to help administrators effectively manage UT’s vast and diverse research portfolio.

The listserv is *not* a tool to communicate with members of the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP). If you have an urgent matter, please be sure to call your OSP contact directly or call the main line (512) 471-6424 and ask to be transferred to someone who can help you.
