Funding Resources

Internal and External Research Opportunities

The college offers several opportunities for faculty and staff to participate in research. Each department has experienced mentors willing to work with new faculty and students. The Office of Research offers seed grant funding for preliminary studies, which could lead to sponsored funding. Researchers also have an opportunity to meet on a quarterly basis with the Associate Dean of Research to discuss relevant issues.
