Mission

As a part of the Center for Faculty Excellence and working closely with the Office of Sponsored Programs, the Research Capacity Team (RCT) advances research and scholarship at MSU by sponsoring workshops on all aspects of grant development and management, partnering faculty for grant writing mentoring, providing mini-grants for faculty to enhance and explore additional research opportunities, and offering other initiatives that support faculty success in research and scholarship. The RCT supports our diverse faculty in ways that foster excellence for everyone.
