Grants and Contracts

Grants at Eastern New Mexico University are overseen by two separate offices. The Office of Grant and Contract Management provides the University with a variety of services in the preparation of external grants. The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs oversees internal grants such as Internal Research or Instructional Development grants.

 

External Grants

The Office of Grant and Contract Management assists faculty and staff in all aspects of producing grant proposals. Staff members can assist you in preparing and producing proposals, including locating funding sources, formulating budgets, providing clerical assistance, obtaining administrative approval, and duplicating and mailing the final product.

For each external grant proposal, the project director must submit both a Budget Approval Form and a Grant Approval Form to the coordinator of grant activities, Jo Laney. These forms can be accessed by University staff and faculty through the ENMU Intranet.

 

Internal Research Grants

The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs solicits internal research proposals from tenure-track faculty members with terminal degrees. The proposals are reviewed by the Research and Faculty Development Committee which is appointed by the Faculty Senate. The committee calls for proposals and recommends awards twice a year; once in the fall for new faculty and again in the spring for all faculty. The call for proposals will appear in the Monday Memo and will be sent to all eligible faculty via email.

 

Instructional Development Grants

The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs also solicits grants for instructional development. These grants provide resources and/or seed money for innovative courses, projects and programs. The proposals are reviewed by the Instructional Development Committee. The call for proposals will appear in the Monday Memo and will be sent to all eligible faculty via email.

 

Protection of Human Subjects

All research involving humans must be approved by the Human Subjects Committee prior to being conducted. The Human Subjects Committee has been charged with the responsibility of screening all studies which employ human subjects conducted under the auspices of Eastern New Mexico University. The guidelines employed for screening are those set forth by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association.

View the Protection of Human Subjects Policies and Guidelines and Screening Form. These documents set forth the policies and procedures for the protection of human subjects in research, instruction, development and other activities conducted at or sponsored by Eastern New Mexico University. They also serve to implement the specific requirements of the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare (45 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 46) as revised April 1, 1977.

Note: The Human Subjects Committee meets as needed, with decisions provided within one month of submission during the academic year. Proposals should be submitted to the Graduate Office; Admin 216 or may be submitted electronically to Bettye.Gollehon@enmu.edu

 

Protection of Animal Subjects

All research involving animals must be approved by the International Animal Care and Use Committee prior to being conducted. The International Animal Care and Use Committee has been charged with the responsibility of screening all studies which employ animals conducted under the auspices of Eastern New Mexico University. The guidelines employed for screening are those set forth by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, specifically, the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare.

 

Faculty In-Service

The Office of Grant and Contract Management offers faculty and staff in-service sessions to enhance their skills and broaden their knowledge of writing proposals and adhering to the University's grant and contract policies and procedures.
