Staffing Update - Contracts Team
I am pleased to announce that with the recent hiring of Brandi Garcia and Katy Jones, the University Research Administration (URA) Contract team is now fully staffed. We appreciate your patience as we have gone through this transition due to turnover of staff. Brandi will be transitioning from her current role with URA Pre-Award during the month of January, but going forward the team’s responsibilities break down as follows:
AURA Grants – Training Courses via Canvas
URA is providing AURA Grants e-learning training courses via Canvas. The live, instructor-led AURA Grants trainings have been condensed into three 10 – 30 minute self-paced learning videos.
Completion of these courses will be required for new department staff utilizing AURA Grants, prior to receiving access to the system. The courses can also be used as a resource for existing departmental staff with current access to AURA.
AURA IRB – Requires cVPN and Two-Factor Authentication
IRB requires a secure connection to UChicago's Virtual Private Network (cVPN). If you're using IRB while working off-campus, you'll need to visit https://cvpn.uchicago.edu and download the Cisco Anyconnect secure mobility client.
The Anyconnect application must be open and connected to cVPN prior to logging in.
