Sponsored Research and Programs 

The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs is responsible for the support, administration and coordination of all externally sponsored research and programs at the college. Closely related to the administration of sponsored projects, the office is also responsible for administering technology transfer activities for the College, to include the Intellectual Property Policy and the licensing of intellectual property. We work closely with the Executive Director of the High Library to address any issues related to copyright compliance (see http://libraryguides.etown.edu/copyright).

Social Enterprise Institute 

The Social Enterprise Institute (SEI) at Elizabethtown College brings together faculty members, industry fellows of the Institute and students, to collaborate on social enterprise development initiatives that create sustainable social and economic value both domestically and internationally. The vision of the SEI at E-town presents an opportunity for the College to make a significant social impact. We do this by building upon a deep respect for the talent, passion and dedication of those who have devoted their lives to working for the common good. This approach aligns with the College's mission to educate our students for lives of service, and providing them with real world learning experiences as well as signature learning experience (SLE) opportunities.

Special Note to Students Interested in Graduate School

The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates with research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, and graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research. Any undergraduate may go to the registration page to fill out a simple curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student or the student's home institution.

Elizabethtown College is a member of the Innovation Transfer Network (ITN)


ITN connects small businesses with faculty from its member network of fifteen regional educational institutions. If faculty members or students are interested in collaboration with regional businesses, investigate ITN.

OSRP Library

Books focusing on Undergraduate Research are available to loan from the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs. Any faculty member, staff member, or student who would like to borrow one of these books, please stop by the office at Alpha 02.
