The Office for Institutional Effectiveness (OFIE), in partnership with the Title III Shared Services Center, is available to assist faculty and staff in the development of a grant proposal from conceptualization to the final submission of a proposal. We are committed to supporting grant applicants develop competitive funding proposals.  To succeed in this goal, we encourage applicants to take advantage of OFIE’s expertise in the review of proposal materials, and the design of a complete and consistent application package.
