Research Administrator Day

Sept 25 is Research Administrator Day.  Recognize, Appreciate, Celebrate

National Research Administrator Day is a time to acknowledge the contributions made by research administrators. We encourage everyone to recognize, appreciate, and celebrate the many ways research administrators support UNMC research.

Research administrators serve an important role in assisting the facilitation of research at UNMC. While their responsibilities are varied and multifaceted, anyone who aids in the pursuit and management of external funding within your college, institute, or department may be a research administrator. How are you getting ready for Research Administrator Day?
