The Records of the ODU Office of Research and Research Foundation

 

History

The Office of Research and Grant Administration was incorporated in 1967 to coordinate all matters concerning research at Old Dominion University.  Grant administration became the exclusive business of the Research Administration Office’s Foundation.  These partner groups oversee grant supported work and document research performed by campus faculty, students, and staff.  The first official director of the office was Clifford L. Adams who made it into the principal engine for the development of funded research at the college.  The name of the office changed several times since its creation, becoming the Office of Research and Development, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, and then Office of Research and Graduate Studies.  In 2003 this office split into the Office of Research (with Robert L. Ash as the Interim Vice President) and a separate Office of Graduate Studies (with Philip J. Langlais as Associate Vice President).

Today the Office of Research is led by Mohammad A. Karim and oversees the university's legal, ethical and safety standards and regulations relating to research. The Old Dominion University Research Foundation, while it acts as a separate entity to provide administrative, fiscal and support services, coordinates its efforts directly with the Office of Research to ensure Old Dominion researchers are given every available resource during the course of their work.

Scope and Contents

The collection documents the functioning of the Office of Research and the Research Foundation. Contents range in date from 1965 to 2010 and include final reports of funded grants, correspondence, newsletters, and various other publications. Within each series, material is arranged in chronological and then alphabetical order.

Series I: Reports Concerning Projects Funded or Administered by Office of Research.  This series includes reports and correspondence sent to the Office about various projects.  It dates from 1965 to 1972.

Series II: Office of Research Foundation Procedural Booklets.  This series holds booklets provided to members of the Foundation board to outline rules about operation and procedure.  They are dated 1975 and 1976.

Series III: Final Reports Submitted to R&D Office.  Collected here are all reports submitted to the office from University Faculty.  All work was funded by grant money allocated by the office and is arranged alphabetically within the chronological order that is determined by the year a grant was awarded to the individual.  Some folders contain both a report and letter regarding that report, some hold only a report, and others merely a letter recording why a hard copy report was not filed with the Research and Development Office (or R&D Office).  The material is dated from 1969 to 1977.
