Communications employees


The Office of Communications is responsible for the overall communications of SDSU Research Foundation, including communication with sponsors, SDSU principal investigators, employees, the media, and other internal and external constituents.

An important component of this communication is the grant information function. Office staff are responsible for the identification and dissemination of grant information to the University community. The office receives and distributes information about federal, state, and private funding sources. Our database of faculty interests allows us to match up grant opportunities with appropriate faculty. We provide program guidelines and application materials, information about agencies and the federal budget, maintain a file of sample funded proposals, facilitate a series of grant-related workshops, and issue a monthly electronic newsletter of funding opportunities to faculty and staff.
