The RAWC program is a program co-developed by both the department led Research Administration Workforce Committee (RAWC) and Financial Services Compliance and Training team. The program was developed to help create a pipeline for campus employees who are not in research administration roles to develop a skillset and expertise in many key research administration areas. This provides both a boost for the resume of the program participant, but also creates a pool of skilled applicants for those hiring on campus to pool from. A win-win all around!
The program is run once a year, starting with a ten-week course training program in the fall, and then completed with a 20-hour practicum in the spring.
