Sponsored Programs, Research & External Engagement (SPREE), formerly known as Office of Research & Sponsored Programs (ORSP), advances the mission of St. Catherine University by promoting research and scholarship; knowledge dissemination; academic program innovation; and student scholarship, loan, internship, and research opportunities.

SPREE serves as the administrative unit accountable for supporting faculty, staff, and students in readying research and innovation projects, acquiring extramural funding, and appropriately administering approximately $8 million in active sponsored projects.

SPREE also oversees research compliance pertinent to sponsor agreements and government regulations, including committees, policies, systems, training, and tools that underscore the University community’s commitment to the ethical conduct of research and scholarship.
