The Board of Trustees created the UNC Research Corporation in April 1989 to provide services related to the development and administration of UNC’s externally funded research and education programs. The staff of the Corporation helped faculty get and manage grants and thereby improve the University’s research capacity. The UNC Research Corporation was dissolved as of June 30, 1999. It was succeeded by Sponsored Programs and Academic Research Center (SPARC), 1999-2009. The Sponsored Programs and Academic Research Center (SPARC) was replaced by the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) in 2009.
