Welcome to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is Marquette University's central point of coordination for sponsored projects and the legally authorized representative for grants, contracts and assurances. ORSP represents the sum of Marquette's experience with extramural sponsors and partners over time. ORSP helps faculty and staff build bridges between Marquette and extramural sponsors and other institutions to advance the university's mission, and it fosters excellence in sponsored projects by promoting best practices, policies and procedures that ensure consistency and efficiency in our transactions with sponsors and partners.


Current Announcements


    Forward Thinking Research Symposium

    Each year, ORSP showcases the exciting research being done at Marquette. In celebrating research across campus, the Forward Thinking Research Symposium provides opportunities to learn more about work being done in other disciplines and fosters professional skills for students. Unlike traditional conferences, where researchers convey the results of work that has been completed, the Forward Thinking presentations focus on projects that will take place in the next 6–12 months.   This year's Symposium will be held on Tuesday, November 29th in the AMU Ballroom. We are excited to announce this year’s event details and hope you can join us to share some of your research!
