The Office of External Resources reports to the Center of Research and Creative Endeavors and, thus, to the Chancellor of the University of Puerto Rico in Arecibo. This office has the charge of promoting and providing support in
the search for external funds for research projects, academic development and expansion, and for artistic and literary development, which in turn serve to generate knowledge, strengthen academic excellence, and impact the growth and well being of our community.
The Office of External Resources
(a) is the point of contact in the institution for all initiatives and activities related to proposal / grant writing seeking external funds,
(b) supervises the development and implementation of policies, procedures, and commitments related to approved funds and projects, and
(c) serves as the University’s liaison with external sources such as federal and state agencies, or other entities with funding opportunities.
