  In addition to the grants directly monitored and/or submitted through the Grants Office, a number of
other grants exist on campus, such as Center of Excellence and other pockets of grant funding that
traditionally have been independent of the Grants Office. In all instances, the Grants Office has been
available to the individuals administering these grants, is aware of their funding levels, and has assisted
them as necessary.
