Administrative Core

The Administrative Core provides leadership, oversight and structure for the UM-SBDRC. This includes administration of a robust Enrichment Program comprising a Mentoring Program, Pilot & Feasibility Program, Travel Awards, Visiting Speaker Series, and an Annual Symposium, with strong departmental and institutional support.

The UM-SBDRC Administrative Core will coordinate Center activities and oversee management of the Resource Cores. It will achieve this by

  • Establishing a strong leadership and support team,
  • Building an effective set of committees to assist with center and resource core administration,
  • Fostering effective interactions with resource cores,
  • Optimizing financial administration throughout the center, and
  • Developing survey tools and metrics to assess center and resource core effectiveness.

The Administrative Core will also build an effective communications platform, which will include a dedicated, interactive UM-SBDRC website, a biannual newsletter, and program and informational emails.

In addition, to enhance the research environment and provide greater opportunities for member interaction and collaboration, the Administrative Core will build a robust Enrichment Program, consisting of:

  • a Pilot & Feasibility Program,
  • Mentoring Program, Travel Award Program,
  • quarterly Visiting Speaker Series, and
  • Annual Symposium.
