About Us

The College of Education's Office of Research and Innovation was established in 2008 to directly support faculty efforts in identifying, cultivating and pursuing state, regional, national and international extramural funding opportunities. This effort was made possible through a $1 million gift by 1968 Education graduates Wayne T. and Cheryl Glass Smith.  This Web site is a tool for faculty and graduate students to explore potential funding sources and receive grant writing support. For questions about how to locate funding related to your specific research interest or for personal assistance during the grant writing process, please contact Dr. Rodney Greer at 334-844-3597 or e-mail the Office of Research and Innovation at
