VCRI Conducting Research Support Services Survey

With the goal of providing the best possible support to all researchers on campus, the Office of Research and Innovation is asking for feedback on services received for research and proposal development support. Responses to the Improving UA Research Support Services survey will provide a better understanding of the needs of the investigator community and allow for the continuity of service improvement by reducing administrative burdens and facilitating continued success in all research endeavors.

Please note that this survey is anonymous. All answers will be kept strictly confidential and will be combined with the responses provided by other researchers, as the purpose of the survey is to glean general insights. Only the aggregated results will be presented to VCRI staff. Completion of the survey should take 15 minutes. The survey will be open through 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7.

Any questions regarding this initiative may be sent to Julie Moody or Kimberley Fuller.
