The Sponsored Projects Training for Administrators in Research (STAR) program is a comprehensive certificated training program developed by the UCSB Office of Research to meet UCSB's research administration needs. The program's goals are to improve campus understanding of regulations, policies, and procedures; to strengthen internal controls; and to provide staff members with access to key resources and contacts when they need help.
The program is designed for employees with duties and responsibilities related to contract and grant administration. Participants are welcome to take one or several courses in areas of particular interest to them-or they may opt to earn a certificate in the STAR program.
The certificate program offers 11 required courses. This year the courses are provided in one series, offered from September through May. To earn a certificate, you must take all 11 classes. Staff members who wish to earn a STAR Program Certificate must complete the coursework in one or two years from the date they begin the course series.
To register, visit the UCSB Learning Center website. Once you have logged in use the search box and type in STAR to view all 11 courses.
