“Advanced Grant Development and Administration” is for those who are already familiar with the grant-writing process and it will provide information about conducting business after grant approval and developing grants directly impacting long-range and strategic planning goals. The class is set for 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Feb. 20, 2010, in Room 101 at Lawson Hall.
