Staff

The Office of Research Services (ORS) is comprised of three main areas: Pre-Award and Research Development Services, Award Management and Compliance, and Research Protections. These areas are linked through common goals and values such as promoting, facilitating, and supporting research, scholarship, teaching, creative activities, and innovation endeavors that are conducted by DePaul University faculty, students, and staff. The organizational chart outlines the structure and interconnection of these three main branches of ORS.
