OSP Publications

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) publishes two publications on a regular basis, each with a specific focus and geared towards specific members of the campus community:

  • OSP Newsletter: This publication is geared towards faculty principal investigators.  Subscribers are automatically enrolled based on their appointment (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor).  This publication focuses on topics of general interest to principal investigators who are applying for or managing extramural awards. To subscribe, please contact Michelle Schoenecker (schoene7@uwm.edu).
  • Research Community Update: This publication is geared towards campus administrators who support research in some fashion–whether serving as a department chair, managing research grant expenses, assisting faculty with proposal development, or supporting research through other methods.  To subscribe, please contact Kari Whittenberger-Keith (kariwk@uwm.edu).

Past issues of both the OSP Newsletter and Research Community Update appear below.
