The mission of the Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) is to provide administrators, faculty, staff, and students with guidance to develop grant proposals and secure external funding for approved projects; and to provide post-award administration to ensure that all grant-funded activities, expenditures, and reports comply with the terms of the award. This mission supports SUNY Broome’s Vision, Mission, Values and Institutional Learning Outcomes. Here is a PDF version of the College’s Strategic Plan 2017-2022 (pdf).
