ORS ListServ

UMKC faculty and personnel involved in research are encouraged to join one of the Office of Research Services Listserv. Through this listserv, ORS distributes important national research news as well as information specific to UMKC researchers and funding opportunities. The ORS listserv is the primary, and often exclusive, venue for communicating news about research, grants, and funding opportunities at UMKC.

For questions or assistance, contact Linda Daugherty at 235-5634 or email r-grants@umkc.edu.
