Training for Excellence in Research Administration


TERA is back for 2017! Available this spring in a condensed, two-day format.

TERAjr sessions will provide new/novice research administrators with the fundamental concepts essential to support a sponsored project at the University of Chicago. Topics will include a summary of project basics, compliance, proposal development, budget management, award management, and closeout.

The first day will provide an overview of the sponsored project lifecycle from proposal development to closeout. The second day will be sponsor-specific and will change with each offering of the course. This spring’s sponsor will be NIH. 

Please secure your spot today by:

  1. downloading the TERAjr Registration Form (2017)
  2. obtaining your supervisor’s approval/signature
  3. emailing the form to by Friday, March 31st 2017

Please also indicate if you will be attending one or both days – if you have less than one (1) year of experience, the first day is a prerequisite for attendance of the second, sponsor-specific session. Upon receipt, URA will follow up to confirm enrollment and program details leading up to the sessions.
