Dissertation Defenses and Prospectus Presentations
Scheduled dissertation defenses and prospectus presentations will take place virtually via Zoom and WebEx meetings. Information on these presentations will be added to the Dissertation Defenses and Prospectus Presentations page as it becomes available.
Office of Research and Sponsored Projects
The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP) is fully staffed and working remotely. Faculty should reach out to their assigned pre- and post-award contacts for assistance.
As of now, there have been no changes to processes or routing. Faculty are encouraged to allow as much time as possible before deadlines since staff are coordinating with the university’s Office of Sponsored Proposals and Awards, an office also working remotely at this time.
Federal sponsors are allowing additional flexibility with charges to grants at this time, particularly related to salaries and costs related to canceled travel. Please review the links below for additional details:
- Office of Management and Budget
- National Science Foundation
- National Institutes of Health
- Full list of agency guidance
ORSP has not received any specific guidance from the Department of Education or Institute of Education Sciences but encourages faculty to reach out to their program officers if they have any questions.
The National Institutes of Health’s Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research has recently released notices of special interest for “Urgent Competitive Revisions and Administrative Supplements” encouraging COVID-19 behavioral and social sciences research.

Technology and Systems Support
Through the month of July, College of Education & Human Development Technology and Systems Support will have members of its staff on campus Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Kendrell David and Toni Marcovecchio will be available on Mondays and Wednesdays; Rafael Johnson and Sam Daniel will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Team members who are not working on campus will be working remotely from home. All tech support staff will be working remotely on Fridays in July.
Please review the following guidelines for tech support requests:
- As departments and units begin returning to the building in the next few weeks, CEHD Tech Support is requesting all faculty and staff who need assistance to make an appointment to see tech support members rather than dropping by the CEHD Tech Support Suite.
- Please remember to submit a help ticket at technology.gsu.edu, call the Help Desk at 404-413-4357 or e-mail the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are experiencing issues with the Georgia State VPN, iCollege, Kaltura, OneUSG or any other university application/system, please visit status.gsu.edu to see if a status has changed before putting in a help ticket.
- When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, please wear a mask unless there is some medical condition preventing you from doing so. The tech support staff will be using masks, gloves and hand sanitizer for all in-person interactions and handling of equipment, and will conduct contactless drop-off and pick-up for equipment to people’s offices within the CEHD building, when requested.
Video tutorials on how to access the virtual private network (VPN), map network drives and other tools for working remotely are available at https://mediaspace.gsu.edu/channel/CEHD%2BIT/157699731 (use your Georgia State login credentials to access these videos). Written instructions for setting up a VPN can be found at https://technology.gsu.edu/technology-services/it-services/security/virtual-private-network.
- Use the VPN when you need to map drives, remote desktop into your computer, or access GoSolar and Banner. Other programs and systems don’t require logging into the VPN.
- If you are experience issues with the VPN, iCollege, Kaltura, OneUSG, any other Georgia State application or campus system, please visit status.gsu.edu to see if the application/program’s status has changed before putting in a help ticket.
