ERA MISSION STATEMENT
To lead research administration's process innovation and support its technology decisions to grow UCI's research enterprise.
ERA focuses on three components
The ERA Team takes the initiative to introduce change for the better. As one of the key points of Pillar 2 of the Strategic Plan is to utilize modern technological tools to create the most effective learning environments, the ERA Team similarly wants to take that approach with systems & processes used in Research Administration – we want to ensure that the campus is using the most efficient systems & processes available; and if not, then working together to make those needed improvements.
The ERA Team is committed to the campus to ensure its readiness in utilization of electronic systems – by way of formal hands-on training and training guides; maintenance of current systems that are already efficiently running; and ensuring data integrity.
The ERA Team’s efforts have one cumulative goal in mind – to expand UCI’s research enterprise. This aligns with Pillar 1 of the Strategic Plan by implementing systems that help department admins & faculty assemble their best proposals in order to bring in extramural funding and reach the goal of increasing research expenditures to over $500 million.
