Reception Table and Crowd

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) hosted our second Recognition Reception on October 6, 2017 to honor all faculty and staff involved in the pursuit of external funding during fiscal year 2017, (7/01/2016 - 6/30/2017). The program began with opening remarks from JMU's new Provost & Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Heather J. Coltman. She provided her insight on the importance of research and scholarship at JMU and the positive effects that it has for our undergraduate students as well as the surrounding community. Next our faculty highlight speaker, Dr. Caroline P. Lubert from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, shared her research with NASA and Orbital ATK to investigate the earth-shaking acoustical vibrations that occur when Orbital's Antares rockets are launched on their mission to resupply the International Space Station.

Finally, Tamara Hatch, Interim Director, and the Office of Research and Scholarship recognized Principal Investigators for an array of accomplishments. The Office of Sponsored Programs will strive to host a Recognition Reception each year to again acknowledge the hard work that is involved in the pursuit of external funding. Thank you to all attendees and those who made the reception come together!
