  • The Office of Research Development assists Maxwell faculty members and other researchers in locating funding opportunities and planning proposals; finding collaborators and building research teams; managing large, complex proposals; and coordinating with institutional research administration and leadership. To that end, we support Maxwell staff having research-administration responsibilities for proposal development and grants management in their respective units.
