Education and training

In broadening its responsibility for the institutional oversight of Wayne State University's externally funded programs, Sponsored Program Administration provides training sessions for a wide range of topics including Cayuse proposal preparation and submission, proposal budget development, Researcher's Dashboard navigation, and generating web-reports.  Regularly held training sessions will be offered; please check the SPA Home Page for scheduled events.  Additionally, one-on-one or small group sessions are available on an as-needed basis.  For details or answers to questions, please contact Tim Foley, SPA Training Coordinator, at 577-8357 or email tpfoley@wayne.edu.

SPA Training Research Administration Certification: Participants who successfully pass all core session tests earn SPA Traiing Certification.  No more than one wrong answer per test qualifies as passing.  A "test-out" option is available for most classes - participants do not need to attend scheduled sessions in order to complete corresponding tests.  However, sessions marked (*) require attendance for successful completion of the program.
