The Research and Sponsored Programs Advisory Committee (RSPAC) is a committee of five (5) at-large faculty constituted by the Academic Senate.  Its role is to advise and work with the Senior Research Officer in the development and expansion of research and sponsored programs activity.

The RSP Advisory Committee's responsibilities may include:

  • Recommending priorities to the Senior Research Officer
  • Developing and reviewing policies, sign-off procedures, and forms
  • Evaluating services and programs
  • Recommending faculty recognition programs
  • Advising on strategic priorities and initiatives

Members of the committee serve as a conduit for information between the the faculty of CSU Channel Islands and the Research Sponsored Programs Office, its staff, and the Senior Research Officer. Together, we work together to elevate the scholarship and innovative work of faculty, students, and staff, and make it visible to our external stakeholders.
