The mission of the Division of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) is to provide leadership in the establishment of partnerships between the faculty, the institution and its constituents, the facilitation of technology transfer and commercialization, and the development and implementation of the operational processes and policies of the research enterprise at CAU including the delivery of pre- and postaward services. This mission is realized through the delivery of value-added, "one-stop" support and management throughout the research and sponsored programs process through the collaboration of research administration, CAU research enterprise and technology transfer and commercialization efforts.
At Clark Atlanta University, we believe that research and education cannot be decoupled. Research and scholarly activity at CAU is essential in providing a world-class educational experience for our students. The Division of Research and Sponsored Programs seeks to leverage the diverse skills and expertise of our students, faculty, researchers, and staff to foster the growth of the research enterprise, provide exceptional research and educational experiences for our students, and make significant discoveries and contributions to the knowledge of humankind.
