Strategic Plan pillar 3


Shape our research efforts to optimize collaborative discovery, especially at the edges and intersections of disciplines.

  1. Enhance the college’s research support capacity, including pre- and post-award support, scaling this support to match research growth and accounting for diverse funding mechanisms.

  2. Integrate areas of existing strength to foster innovations, translation, quality and growth in research, and to identify new frontiers.

  3. Identify and implement mechanisms and strategies to scale existing creative research activities — in both depth and breadth — for team science.

  4. Build on the research excellence and growth of activities across our entire geographic footprint.

  5. Leverage the college’s unique relationships and competitive advantages found through partnership and integration to grow research and enhance the quality and impact of our research.
