Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities

Welcome to Cal State LA’s
Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities


 

The Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities (ORSCA), a unit in the Division of Academic Affairs, provides research development support services to the university community. ORSCA helps Principal Investigators identify external funding opportunities, and provides assistance at every stage of proposal development. To ensure the highest conformity with University and Federal policies, ORSCA provides support and guidance for compliance issues related to the use of human subjects and animal subjects in research, conflicts of interest, and research misconduct. As the products of research come to fruition, ORSCA assists PI's with intellectual property and technology transfer processes.

ORSCA also highlights and supports campus research activity by administering the Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity Award program, the Student Symposium on Research Scholarship and Creative Activities, Seed Grants, Research Seminars at ORSCA Cafe, a semi-annual newsletter, and the campus research magazine, Research at Cal State LA. Through these activities, ORSCA increases opportunities for faculty and students to engage in research, scholarship and creative activities, supporting the academic mission of this comprehensive university.

Take advantage of our resources and links for faculty and students interested in our programs and services. From forms to frequently asked questions, we want to provide you with current information you need.
