Tricia Callahan, OARS’ Director of Proposal Development, was recently named a 2015 Global Fellow by the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA).
As an NCURA Global Fellow, Callahan will travel to the University of Luxembourg for a two-week period sometime during 2015. While there, she will engage in an exchange of knowledge about research administration operations and practices.
“Miami is among the top universities nationally for study abroad. Many of our faculty members teach and conduct research internationally, and the number of international constituents at Miami – both faculty and students – is on the rise,” Callahan says. “So it’s imperative that we keep abreast of the latest rules and regulations pertaining to travel, study, and research abroad.”
According to NCURA, the Global Fellowship Program “hopes to create a pool of individuals who are able to interpret a multitude of various sponsor requirements and to assist their institution with administrative compliance – from application submission through financial reporting and closeout.”
