The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) serves as an advocate for UMBC’s research community, and supports our faculty, staff and students as they pursue research, scholarship and creative activities across all levels.
We are proud of our successful partnerships with federal and state agencies, foundations and the private sector. Our research efforts are based on strengths in the arts, engineering, humanities, information technology, natural and mathematical sciences, public policy and social sciences. Together, we catalyze interdisciplinary collaboration and education, and create new economic opportunities through the transfer of inventions and technologies. OVPR is organized into four offices that interact closely with each other: the Office of Research Development (ORD), the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), the Office of Research Protections and Compliance (ORPC), and the Office of Technology Development (OTD).
