Tracy Eisenhower, Ute Lowery, and Janis Nichols presented at
the Society of Research Administrators International annual conference, held
October 27–31, 2018.
Lowery and Nichols presented a session titled
“Adventures in Budget Modification.” The
session covered how to calculate budget modification at both award time and

on factors to consider when a budget modification is needed, and the actual
formulas used to calculate the modifications.

University of Nebraska Omaha and presented “Strategies for Increasing Research
in a Predominantly Undergraduate Institute (PUI).” They led a discussion on best practices meant
to encourage and support research activity.
