About ORS

Mission

The Office of Research Services supports the mission of Texas Tech by providing centralized administrative and management services for sponsored projects. Sponsored projects include grants, contracts and cooperative agreements–from both the public and private sectors–which support research, instructional and service projects.

Vision

Our vision for the Office of Research Services is that the office:

  • will continue to be viewed by faculty and staff as an exemplary service-oriented office;
  • will continue to meet the needs of faculty and staff in budget development and submission of proposals, in negotiation of awards, in establishment of project accounts and in the management of sponsored projects;
  • will continue to work cooperatively with all other academic and administrative offices;
  • will continue to enable the university to comply with all sponsor requirements.
