FAS Research Administration Services

Where to Go for Help

Many departments in the FAS have individuals with extensive experience in developing and managing sponsored projects. Department administrators, laboratory directors, and financial officers can provide information on local resources and on the departmental review process.

FAS Research Administration Services

FAS Research Administration Services, under the direction of the Associate Dean for Research Administration, shares with departments many of the responsibilities associated with the preparation and approval of sponsored proposals, the management of awards, and training on all aspects of research administration. View the FAS RAS Team Directory.

Research Administration Services is located on the second floor of 1414 Massachusetts Avenue — above the Bank of America, across from Out of Town News, and the same block as The Harvard Coop. Take the front elevators to the second floor as a key is required for the stairs. Click Here for Map.
