Paula Mattison Joins Office of Research Staff

The Office of Research and Office of Sponsored Programs is pleased to have Paula Mattison in the newly created position of Director of Business Operations.

Mattison will be responsible for all financial policies and planning for the Division of Research, the WKU Research Foundation, and the Office of Sponsored Programs.

The WKU Research Foundation promotes the education research purposes of WKU as fiscal agent of sponsored programs. Mattison will focus on grants, contracts, cooperative agreements, intellectual property, and other research, instruction, and public services initiatives.

Dr. Gordon Baylis, Vice President for Research and President of the WKU Research Foundation is pleased to welcome Mattison to the staff. 

"The WKU Research Foundation will increasingly be a vehicle for tech transfer, and faculty entrepreneurship," Baylis said. "The Foundation will have to assume responsibility for funding more of what we do, as our other sources of funding erode."

"I am delighted to have someone of the skills, intelligence and temperament of Paula. These are times full of challenge and opportunity, and her steady hand on the tiller will guide us through these tricky waters."

Mattison comes to the Office of Research with more than 19 years of experience in accounting and five years experience in grants and contracts accounting.

Nancy Mager, Director of Sponsored Programs at WKU looks forward to Paula joining the staff. “We are very excited to welcome Paula to our research team,” Mager said.  “Her grants and contracts accounting background will provide us with a broader focus in developing future research projects.”  

Paula holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Accounting from WKU. She is a Certified Grant Manager, served on the WKU Staff Council in 2010-2011, participated in the WKU Staff Leadership Program in 2009.
