Welcome from the Vice President for Research

CWRU researchers are among the most distinguished in the world. We have 16 Nobel Laureates among current and former faculty and alumni, 4 members of the National Academies of Sciences, 7 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 8 members of the Institute of Medicine. We also partner with artistic and cultural institutions on a broad range of projects that make important scholarly contributions in the humanities and social sciences.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research & Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, to facilitate industrial sponsorship, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. This is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

Research.gov Now Supports Login with CWRU Credentials

The Office of Research Administration is pleased to announce that CWRU visitors to NSF's Research.gov website can now login with their CWRU network ID and password. This additional login option on their website will allow our researchers and research administrators an easier way to use all of the services that the NSF offers.

On the Research.gov login page, there is an "Organization Credential" option on the right-side of the page where visitors can choose Case Western Reserve University. Selecting our university and then clicking the blue "Log In" button will either present the user with CWRU's SSO login screen or, if they are already logged into another SSO-supported CWRU app such as Gmail, they will be automatically logged into Research.gov.

Visitors will still need to have an activated NSF account which will be linked to your CWRU network ID the first time you login to Research.gov. CWRU researchers will still be able to use their NSF ID and password to login if preferred.

Compact between Students and Their Research Advisors

A framework for aligning the graduate student mentor-mentee relationship

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has released the Compact between Students and Their Research Advisors. These guiding principles are intended to support the development of a positive mentoring relationship between the pre-doctoral student and their research advisors. A successful student-mentor relationship requires commitment from the student, mentor, graduate program, and institution. This document offers a set of broad guidelines which are meant to initiate discussions at the local and national levels about the student-mentor relationship.

We encourage ALL members of the graduate education community to utilize and share this document.
