Training


The Research Grants and Contracts Office has designed these training programs to ensure that departmental staff has access to information that will provide them with a foundation of knowledge to assist them in understanding how to appropriately administer sponsored programs at Emory. RGC provides a wide variety of educational opportunities at Emory University related to sponsored program administration with the mission to support and enhance sponsored program administration processes, both internally and externally. The courses offer guidance on the rules and regulations governing compliance with federal, University, contractual and other sponsor requirements.
