The Northwestern Central & Local Exchange for Effective Administration of Research (CLEAR) meetings and webinars are hosted by the Office for Sponsored Research (OSR) on a monthly basis. These educational forums are meant to engage attendees in discussions of notable sponsor and university policy changes, system updates, and other relevant topics that affect the Northwestern research administration community.
