Dr. Lauren Causey earns research administrator certification

submitted by petersj4@augsburg.edu

Dr. Lauren Causey, Manager of Sponsored Research, is now a Certified Research Administrator (CRA). 

The CRA exam is administered by the Research Administrators Certification Council. Earning this credential is an important indicator that Lauren possesses the range of knowledge needed to oversee the entire life cycle of a federal sponsored program, from pre-award research and proposal development to award negotiation and budget management. 

Lauren joined the Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs in November of 2018 where she oversees faculty research and federal grant submissions (e.g. National Science Foundation & National Institutes of Health). Prior to joining Augsburg, she was Senior Evaluation and Research Associate at the Science Museum of Minnesota. Lauren holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in Education, Curriculum, and Instruction from the University of Minnesota—Twin Cities. 

Please join me in congratulating Lauren for this remarkable achievement!
