Quote of the Week

“Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It’s the best part of the day.” – George Allen, Sr.

Graduate Level Humor


Attention Faculty: Apply Now for an Organized Research Grant

Organized research grants (ORG) are competitively awarded to faculty to provide seed money for research program establishment or expansion. Organized research grant (ORG) projects must focus on faculty research, scholarship, or creative works. They are not intended for the maintenance or continuation of on-going projects or to provide funding for graduate thesis or dissertation activities. Due to the funding source supporting such activities, project awards are limited to a period of one year. Find submission forms online, or email Dr. Roger Wittie with questions at
