COEUS Replacement Project
The COEUS Replacement Project was designed to streamline and modernize research administration operations across Drexel’s research enterprise via a reevaluation of organizations, policies, procedures, processes, compliance, and systems across the research enterprise. The project aligns with Drexel’s Research Strategic Plan, and will simultaneously help Drexel retain its coveted Carnegie R1 designation. Our collective work will allow the university to continue optimizing its pursuit and management of research while meeting the needs of principal investigators, administrators, university leadership, and research support functions.
Our collective work will empower the research community to leverage more robust and efficient research support services and provide various levels of management across the community better tools for use in developing and supporting their work. With the successful completion of this program, Drexel expects to have well-defined processes supported by documented policies and procedures. This will inform the design and implementation of a fully integrated, cost-effective, enterprise-wide business system that will eliminate manual processes and incorporate generally accepted best practices across the research administration environment.
