Grants and Sponsored Projects

Notre Dame de Namur University recognizes the immense value of grants and sponsored projects. Through external support, the University is able to develop programs that improve the quality of education for students, provide access to quality education to underserved populations, expand academic support services, raise endowment funds for scholarships, improve student retention and graduation rates, provide information and services that benefit our community, improve data collection and analysis, and more.

In accepting sponsored project funding, University faculty and staff who conduct sponsored projects have an important fiduciary responsibility to manage and administer such projects carefully while adhering to University policy, federal, state, and local laws, grantor award terms, and applicable regulatory, program, and compliance requirements.

The world of grants and sponsored projects is complex. The NDNU Grant Management and Administration Handbook has been created to give practical guidance to University faculty and staff in the management and administration of grants and sponsored projects. This Handbook will acquaint new project personnel with the policies and procedures of the University and serve as a reference guide for all employees conducting sponsored projects.
