The CNS Research Administrators’ Network (CNS RAN) is a university-recognized association of research administrators within the College of Natural Sciences. CNS RAN has the overarching goal of improving grants administration practices and facilitating open discussion about grants administration within the College. The group meets monthly to discuss best practices, changes and updates, and outstanding needs regarding grants administration.

 

UPDATE: DURING THE STAY HOME - WORK SAFE ORDER CNS RAN WILL MEET VIRTUALLY VIA ZOOM. SUBSCRIBE TO THE CNS RAN LISTSERV TO RECEIVE MEETING DETAILS.
