One hallmark of any expanding Office of Research Services is the presence of Research Facilitators. The job of Research Facilitators is to:
1) EDUCATE: mentor and train researchers on using specific strategies and information that help develop winning funding proposals from foundations, industry, and government granting bodies;
2) COMMUNICATE: coordinate activities that bridge knowledge gained from research projects to the community, otherwise known as knowledge mobilization.
3) CONSULT: review, analyze and provide recommendations on grant applications. This includes an examination of the feasibility, challenge and capability of the research project
4) LIAISE: represent the university and its researchers at community events and consortiums and draw important connections between research possibilities and practical concerns of the community
