To accomplish that mission, the office advocates for research and graduate education, oversees graduate programs and the graduate student application process, implements research integrity requirements, and, through the KU Center for Research manages the administration of research grants and contracts. RGS also has oversight of activities related to technology commercialization and business and industry outreach.
