Our Mission

Support faculty, students, staff and university administration in efforts to encourage and support research, creative activities, and other expressions of academic scholarship.

Mentored Learning

We sponsor several mentoring programs (ORCA and MEG grants) that connect undergraduate students with faculty mentors to work on research projects and creative endeavors.

Compliance Committees

ORCA houses three compliance committees responsible for managing and approving human subject (IRB), animal subject (IACUC), and recombinant DNA (IBC) research.
