WSU Grants Office Assessment Survey

"The Mission of the Office of Grants and Sponsored Research is to support WSUians in seeking, securing and administering public and private grants that contribute to individuals' professional development, strengthen the quality of the institution's academic and support programs, and enhance the stature of the University."

To assess our efforts in pursuing that mission, we would appreciate it if WSUians would take a moment to complete the following survey before May 15, 1999.
