Welcome to the Office of Research, Innovation, and Sponsored Programs (ORISP). Research is one of the cornerstones of the University mission, and it impacts the quality of our instruction, outreach and service endeavors. Today, research at PVAMU provides a portal to discovering new knowledge, advancing scholarship, and propelling economic development. The breadth of research activities across PVAMU influences and enriches the lives of the citizens of the state of Texas, the nation and the world.

ORISP fosters and promotes the research enterprise and scholarly activity at PVAMU by ensuring that faculty, staff, and students receive the succor and support necessary to engage in a wide range of research activities. The Office of Research, Innovation, and Sponsored Programs offer essential and strategic expertise to support all aspects of sponsored activities, including research compliance, proposal development, and pre-award services, interdisciplinary and new program development, and guidance on conceptualizing and protection of intellectual property through our innovation, commercialization and entrepreneurship center.
