Texas Tech University

Upcoming Training for Faculty and Researchers

September 25, 2013

The Office of Research Services is pleased to present the following seminars and/or workshops in order to promote your success at Texas Tech. Seating is generally limited so your RSVP would be greatly appreciated. Please RSVP to Cindal Peterson at cindal.peterson@ttu.edu. All sessions will be held in the Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center (TLPDC) located in the Library in the room indicated.


In order to facilitate a smooth transition to the research process at TTU, the Office of Research Services is conducting a research orientation for all incoming faculty and research staff. Faculty who are new to campus and those who are not-so-new (but have never attended a research orientation) are encouraged to attend. The session will cover proposal development and processing; review institutional policies and procedures affecting research at Texas Tech; internal and external funding opportunities; and inform attendees about compliance issues. Attendance is not mandatory but strongly encouraged. Registration is required as seating is limited. Sessions will last for approximately 2-1/2 hours.

Fri., September 27, 2013 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. OR 1-3:30 p.m. Room 153, TLPDC
Thurs., December 5, 2013 1-3:30 p.m. Room 153, TLPDC


The Office of Research Services is now using Cayuse 424 for proposal submission. The Cayuse system will track our research proposal and award activity, provide for streamlined-internal routing and approval of proposals, facilitate submission to sponsor systems, and store proposal and award documents. This training session will walk you through the proposal submission process using Cayuse 424.

Thurs., October 3, 2013 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Room 151, TLPDC
Fri., October 18, 2013 9:30-11:30 a.m. Room 151, TLPDC
