Are you interested in learning about the diverse aspects of sponsored projects administration?

If so, you might be interested in taking the COMPASS certification course in the fall of 2015. What is a compass? It certainly is a tool to help navigate the immensity of the oceans or the pathways of the earth. It can also mean to achieve, attain or accomplish. The “Compass” program at Auburn embraces both meanings as we try to guide research administrators through the myriad channels of knowledge they need to perform their job including minimizing and hopefully, avoiding errors. Proceeding from the quote by Henry St. John, “Truth lies within a little and certain compass, but error is immense,” the Compass Curriculum instills a heightened sense of responsibility in its participants to perform their job at the highest level.

If you are interested in taking the 10-week COMPASS certification course in the fall, you will need to enroll in the COMPASS Intro class (OM190) this spring (Feb. 4) or summer (date to be announced). (Register for OM190: Sponsored Projects Administration in Fast-Train. Follow this link to the instructions. As additional information, we will be limiting the fall enrollment to 12 participants. Dates for the fall course will be available shortly.
