NCURA is proud to offer a new workshop geared specifically for the departmental administrator, the Departmental Research Administration Workshop (DRA). Administrators who work at the department and college level have unique challenges. Like central offices, we must have the knowledge of pre- and post-award functions. What distinguishes the departmental research administrator from other research support functions is being intimately involved with all facets of the administration process, daily interaction with faculty, as well as other departmental-specific responsibilities.
