The Office of Research Administration (ORA) is pleased to introduce Cayuse, our new web-based research administration system. Cayuse contains three products:
Cayuse was chosen in the summer of 2014 by a selection committee led by the Office of Research and Graduate Programs and UNIT. The committee was representative of the Villanova research community, and included faculty from all colleges, Deans’ offices, and other administrative offices. Cayuse was chosen for its ease and transparency, its ability to integrate with existing Villanova systems, and its robust reporting capabilities.
During 2015, ORA and UNIT conducted extensive configuration and implementation work that resulted in the system going live in the summer of 2015. During the 2015-2016 academic year, we will be providing orientation and training opportunities for faculty and staff, with the plan to transition fully from the paper Transmittal and IRB applications in 2016.
