The Research Development division was established in 2008 as the Office of Proposal Development to assist USU researchers in developing stronger proposals for submission to external sponsors. The division was renamed Research Development in 2015 to more accurately reflect the work being one. Since its establishment, the division has grown from a one-person shop to a network of multiple college-based specialists. Our primary goal is to foster a competitive advantage in the search for external funding by helping researchers develop strong and successful proposal writing skills and research portfolios, and ultimately expand the revenue created by externally funded research at USU.
