Satellite Offices

In collaboration with the Social Science Research Institute, ORS established a regional outpost of key central offices to provide convenient face-to-face service for all aspects of the grant administration process. Key participating offices include ORS – Grants and Contracts, the Campus IRB and the Closeout Implementation Team.

The participating offices provide on-site training support to include assistance with proposal submission, award management and closeout, issue resolution, ad hoc training for new employees, and targeted small group workshops and discussions. The goal is to help build the capacity of campus based units with direct and intensive interactions to increase Duke University’s ability to compete for grant funding in an ever increasingly competitive environment with particular concentration on the social sciences. Through these interactions the units hope to discover and learn from each other how to complete their tasks more efficiently and effectively, how to work together to establish best practices, and how to continuously improve research services in support of their faculty.

The links below will take you to directions to Gross Hall and to a calendar to sign up for consultations. The office hours are posted. Let’s build a more vibrant research administration community together.

  • Go to calendar view in Outlook
  • On the ribbon bar that appears across the top, find and click on Open Calendar button
  • Choose the From Address Book Option
  • Type Gross Hall and the first item on the list below should be as shown in the following screen shot. Gross Hall 230P (ORS)
  • Once highlighted, click the Calendar button so that the resource appears in the blank next to the Calendar button, as shown above and then click OK button to continue.
  • Once that is done, the room resource should appear as a calendar in your calendar view.  To request a meeting, select New Meeting in the top left of your screen. You will probably only be given the option for New Meeting With All. That is okay. Select it and delete any unwanted invitees.
  • Make sure the day and the time you are requesting for the meeting are correct; then “Send”. You will receive an email that the appointment has been accepted or declined. Because this confirmation is not automatic, please allow time for ORS personnel to answer the request.

If you do not use Outlook, you can either a) get Outlook or b) email Susan Lasley in ORS with your request.
