Research Administrators Information Network

3Research Administrators Information Network (RAIN) is a joint effort between the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), the Office of Corporate Contracts (OCC), and Grant and Contract Accounting (GCA).

RAIN meetings are typically held four times each year to provide continuing education and updates in research administration. Meetings are open to all personnel involved with research administration. Typical agendas include updates from ORSP, OCC, and GCA, plus a guest speaker. We welcome suggestions for speakers and topics for upcoming meetings.
