I am Dr. Andrew Maus. I am the Assistant Dean of Operations for the School of Advanced Studies and I am also the Director of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) Office.
I wanted to introduce myself to you all and share a few things with you regarding what the IRB office is implementing to improve its functionality and processes. Specifically, we aim to reduce package processing times, decrease email response times, and improve IRB-related skills and awareness among students and faculty.

This month's Scholarship Council meeting was held on Monday, September 24th, with both virtual and in-person attendance. Dr. Kimberly Underwood, University Research Center Chair for the Center for Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Research presented on the state of the Research and Scholarship Enterprise (RSE). The Research and Scholarship Enterprise, out of the School of Advanced Studies, focuses on three areas: 1) research and scholarship support, 2) serving on policy and governing bodies, such as COR and SC, and 3) leading the University Research Centers.
The Scholarship Council has an offical page on the Research Hub! Although the council has been around since 2014, it has yet to have a dedicated space for others to learn about it's purpose and activities. Visit their page today to learn more about the University of Phoenix's Scholarship Council.
Over 400 participants attended the 2018 Knowledge Without Boundaries Research Summit. This virtual event allowed attendees to view dynamic presentations, engage in thought-provoking question and answer sessions, all while being comfortably situated in their own homes. Yes, it was a highly successful event! And, we are working to make the 2019 KWB Research Summit even better.
