Message from the Chair

As Chair of Region II, I would like to welcome to each of our members within the region, and also to our colleagues who may be visiting this page. Upon navigating the various sections, you will find a array of information specific to our region and information that will be beneficial to all research administrators. Please let me know if there is other information you might recommend adding to our page, so that we can provide you with the best information possible. In the event you are visiting this page to learn more about NCURA, I am confident you will find this website will provide the information your looking to ascertain. For those of you visiting the site for the first time or are new to research administration, the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) is an organization of individuals involved in the administration of sponsored programs at colleges, universities and teaching hospitals.  Region II (Mid-Atlantic region) is comprised of research administrators from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington, DC, and West Virginia. Through networking, meetings and professional development opportunities we strive to provide our members with information to assist them in their day-to-day business practices.  Whether you are a visitor, a new member or an active member, Region II offers administrators regional meetings, professional development workshops, and a Mentor-Me Program as forums to provide a platform for professional development, networking and leadership growth. It is through these venues we are able to train the next generation of research administrators.

I would also like to take the opportunity to introduce your 2018 Regional officers:
Charles Bartunek, University of Maryland – Chair-Elect
Adriel “Ady” Villegas-Estrada, Weill Cornell Medicine – Treasurer
Bryan M. Cacciotti, SUNY at Buffalo – Secretary

Thank you for this opportunity to serve as your Regional Chair. Please feel free to email me if I can be of any other service to you.

Dennis Paffrath
