Setting a Standard for Excellence in Research

Introducing: COS/Pivot™

To assist faculty in identifying research funding, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs has subscribed to Pivot™, a powerful tool that:

  • Identifies researcher expertise from within or outside of our organization from millions of profiles from leading research organizations worldwide
  • Fosters collaboration by cultivating essential partnerships and alliances
  • Enhances communication, monitoring, and tracking amongst individual faculty, or teams of researchers, and the Research Development office
  • Delivers weekly funding alerts

Pivot™ provides researchers with an efficient method to identify the right research opportunities, funding, and people—quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration—for faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students.
