Committee of Research Administrators (CoRA) Kicks Off at Pitt



CoRA is a new committee at the University charged by the Vice Provost for Research with the mission of facilitating the recertification process for University of Pittsburgh Certified Research Administrators (CRAs), Certified Pre-Award Administrators (CPRAs), and/or Certified Financial Research Administrators (CFRAs).  CoRA’s objectives include:

  • Inform current CRAs of internal and external seminars, webinars, and training opportunities that can potentially count for CRA recertification contact hours
  • To organize and facilitate contact hour opportunities
  • To offer mentorship to newly certified CRAs
  • To provide a forum for discussing and facilitating other professional development opportunities for research administrators
  • To provide instruction, as needed, in University of Pittsburgh CRA preparatory classes
