This records subgroup contains the records of the North Carolina State University Research Committee, which provides service and support for research interests of members of the faculty. Records include correspondence, annual reports, meeting minutes, policy statements, as well as project proposals and award distribution from granting agencies. Materials within the collection reflect the changing research concerns of the university. Issues confronted by the Research Committee range from policy creation and funding problems to the creation of web pages, depending on the various time periods. The University Research Committee's records range in date from 1943 to 2004.

The North Carolina State University (previously College) Research Committee provides oversight in the administration of research proposals and funding resources for members of the faculty. While committee responsibilities have changed and evolved throughout the years, the management of proposal development (including budget development and agency guidelines) have maintained. The Research Committee has been concerned with the review and development of institutional policy for research, with assistance in obtaining financial support for research and research facilities. Its principal activities include the following: (1)Obtaining information on sources of funds, (2) Assisting individual faculty members in structuring proposals for grants and contracts, (3) Administering special research funds.

Biographical/historical note

The North Carolina State University (previously College) Research Committee provides oversight in the administration of research proposals and funding resources for members of the faculty. While committee responsibilities have changed and evolved throughout the years, the management of proposal development (including budget development and agency guidelines) have maintained. The Research Committee has been concerned with the review and development of institutional policy for research, with assistance in obtaining financial support for research and research facilities. Its principal activities include the following: (1)Obtaining information on sources of funds, (2) Assisting individual faculty members in structuring proposals for grants and contracts, (3) Administering special research funds.

The Research Committee of North Carolina State College (later University) was established to insure that uniform principles, regulations, and procedures in relation to research activities be prescribed. The University Research Committee advises the Vice Chancellor's office regarding faculty research interests as well as encouraging research, helping to develop policies and procedures, informing faculty regarding support, and making recommendations regarding funding.

The administration of faculty awards for research has expanded throughout the history of committee. Currently (2011) the program provides services to facilitate the submission of proposals, negotiation of agreements, and the administration of internally and externally funded projects. All administrative bodies that oversee grants and contracts seek guidance from this committee. External sponsors include federal, state, local governments and private enterprise. These sponsors provide funding through grants, cooperative agreements or contracts.
