The Anchin Center houses 6 million dollars' worth of federally (e.g., NSF) and privately (Helios Educational Foundation) funded projects and is the home for over 25 educator professional development projects. These projects focus on STEM, technology integration, teacher leadership, school administrator professional development, and teacher education. The Anchin Center provides financial and other support to University of South Florida College of Education principal investigators and other project coordinators. The David C. Anchin Center also facilitates the cultivation of important partnerships needed for successful educational research. Specifically, the center brings together college of education faculty and district partners to better understand practical problems today's educators face. By using this approach, educators generate knowledge about how to improve teaching, leadership, and schools. With an expert staff and faculty members from various fields, the Anchin Center's primary goal is to ensure the success of each project.
Administrative staff assigned to the Center provide fiscal and human resources support to faculty projects that do not employ their own administrative staff. Specifically, they support the day-to-day implementation of project activities (e.g., hiring project staff, purchasing, and other transactions). In addition, Center/faculty efforts are supported by two main centralized units: Office of Research and Central Financial Services. The Office of Research support pre- and provide oversight of post-award efforts related to grants and contracts. In addition to conducting all business transactions in collaboration with administrative staff, Central Financial Services support all efforts related to Educational and General accounts, Foundation accounts, and Education Business Accounts (i.e., auxiliary) efforts.
