Research Office Rolls Out New Name

OREA becomes ORS


Research Office

The CU College of Nursing’s Office of Research and Extramural Affairs (OREA) recently changed its name to the Office of Research and Scholarship (ORS).

"Extramural Affairs means funding," says Associate Dean Karen Sousa. Even though “funding is absolutely necessary, it shouldn’t be the purpose of what we do here—we are here to discover, to inform, to help. The spirit and the name of this office should reflect that. “ORS offers unparalleled research and funding support.”

Even though funding is absolutely necessary, it shouldn’t be the purpose of what we do here – we are here to discover, to inform, to help.  The spirit and the name of this office should reflect that.  “ORS offers unparalleled research and funding support.”

Research-wise, ORS helps students and faculty with consultation, protocol adherence, statistical support, writing/editing, and full-scale mock reviews prior to grant submission.  ORS introduces to students and faculty all available funding options, and the staff provides meticulous pre-award and post-award support, helping secure funds, distribute funds and coordinate all funding-related forms.
