Introduction to Division of Research

Dear Colleagues,

The Division of Research would like to welcome everyone to Fall 2023 and highlight an important name change for our division. As many of you remember, in 2021 the Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED) was rebranded as Research, Economic Development and Graduate Education (R-EDGE). With the return of Graduate Education to Academic Affairs, the Division of Research recognizes an exciting opportunity to re-focus on our core priorities of research, scholarly and creative activities within a teacher-scholar framework and is returning to a name that aligns with that focus – the Division of Research. 

The Division of Research works to make research possible at Cal Poly through pre- and post-grant award administration, internal funding opportunities, research integrity and compliance practices, student research, and tech transfer.   

During the 2022-23 academic year, in partnership with the Office of the President and the Office of the Provost, the Division of Research provided over $900 thousand in internal funding for Cal Poly faculty-led projects through Research, Scholarly and Creative Activities (RSCA) GrantsTeacher Scholar Mini Grants, and the Proposal Development Program. If you would like to join our research listserv and receive communication about events or funding opportunities related to research, please let us know by replying to this message. 

The Division of Research looks forward to collaborating with you! Learn more at or contact us at 


Dawn Neill, Ph.D.
Interim Vice President, Research
