Smith named certified research administrator

Smith

Wendy B. Smith, grants and contracts administrator for the College of Allied Health Sciences, has received national recognition as a certified research administrator.  This certification requires a combination of formal education, years of experience in the field, and a broad knowledge/skill set demonstrated by passing a national board exam.

Currently, only three individuals at ECU (including Wendy) are CRA certified.  There are three each at UNC-Charlotte and Wilmington, five at UNC-Chapel Hill and one at UNC-Greensboro.

According to Maryellen O’Brien, director of Sponsored Programs at ECU, the CRA certification reflects a “commitment to the profession as well as intelligence and command of the guiding principles and practices of research administration.”
