Sponsored Programs records are imported monthly. Records come from the COEUS Administrative system. You may discover discrepancies in this data from your documentation. Please contact me and we will make inquiries.

Courses - Lectures and Labs have been imported to Classes Taught. New this year, we imported Supervised Research and Directed Independent Study courses to the Directed Student Learning screen. We have received feedback over the years that Supervised Research and Directed Independent Study courses require different effort from faculty members and the Directed Student Learning screen allows you to document this more fully if you wish to do so.
