In early September, Chancellor White visited SF State for a two-day campus tour.
On Wednesday morning, Dr. White attended a research and scholarship forum, which gave students and faculty from several campus departments an opportunity to share their latest work with the chancellor and University leadership.
Presentations from faculty and students included Dr. Kimberly Tanner and Hibba Ashraf (Biology/CoSE); Dr. Julie Chronister with Kurt Silver and Melissa Lawton (Counseling/HSS); Dr. Ezequiel Morsella and Allison Allen (Psychology/CoSE); Dr. Gloria Soto and Catherine Lipson (Special Education/ED); Dr. Michael Anderson and Alicia Hightower (Classics, LCA); Dr. Connie Ulasewic and Daniela Zesati (Consumer & Family Studies/HSS); Dr. Teaster Baird, Jr. and Commodore St. Germain (Chemistry & Biochemistry/ CoSE).

Effective October 17, 2013, the federal government has reopened.
ORSP will keep lines of communication open with the campus community and as we receive new information, we will update our website (research.sfsu.edu ) and will send out special memos and notifications to affected PI groups, departments and colleges.
ORSP is committed to minimizing the impact on PI projects and funding, as well as proposal submissions.
Please be sure to remain in contact with your Grant Administrator or Sponsored Programs Manager if you have any questions or concerns. A list of agency announcements is provided below.
National Science Foundation
- Resumption of Operations at the National Science Foundation
- A new page (http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/postshutdown.jsp) has been developed directly off the main NSF website that includes both the Important Notice as well as supplemental guidance that addresses grant and cooperative agreement related policy and systems issues. This page will continue to be updated as new information becomes available. Policy-related questions regarding the shutdown may be addressed to email@example.com.
Natiional Institutes of Health (NIH)
Federal grants are hard to get, and recent changes in the number of submissions allowed to the NIH, for example, require that proposals be pitch-perfect before they go out. Because of this, faculty in many universities have found that pre-review of their proposals through external consultants reveals problems that can be fixed before final submission.
If you would like to request ORSP to pay for a pre-review of any federal agency proposal, please complete the online Request for External Review form.
