LIRA System Training

You are here

Dear Lehigh faculty and staff,

With the launch of the LIRA (Lehigh Integrated Research Administration) system just a few months away (March 2023), our staff in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs have been hard at work, developing training sessions for system users. We are pleased to offer a broad array of opportunities, starting January 16.

Visit our training page for the schedule. Please note that registration in advance is required!

Who should attend LIRA training sessions?

  • Faculty and staff who create proposals, and staff in the colleges, centers, and institutes who support proposal preparation, award, and agreement management
  • Department chairs and their delegates

Staff in the offices of Research Integrity, General Counsel, Tech Transfer, and LTS will be invited to select training sessions that relate to their role in the process.

January open forums

Please join us for our January open forums, where we will walk through certifying a funding proposal and review how to check the status of proposals and awards in LIRA.
