On February 24, 2016, the UMBC Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) hosted a luncheon for new tenure-track faculty and their chairs. Almost 30 new tenure-track professors have joined the UMBC faculty for the 2015-2016 academic year and most were present at the luncheon. This event provided new faculty with the opportunity to learn about the university's research infrastructure in substantial detail. Vice President for Research Karl Steiner convened the working lunch and served as the master of ceremonies for the event, which included presentations from the four subunits of OVPR:
- The Office of Research Development
- The Office of Sponsored Programs
- The Office of Research Protections and Compliance
- The Office of Technology Development
