Applied Research

The Office of Applied Research works with educational institutions, government, industry, entrepreneurs, and community partners on practical applied research relevant to the region. Applied R&D will be supported by our system of collecting, and reporting information and knowledge. Through a dedication to research and innovative activities, we help promote community and economic development, improve educational program quality and delivery, enhance students’ learning experience, and foster professional development of faculty and staff.

  • Faculty - enrich professional knowledge and skills to help improve program delivery and quality
  • Partners - meet a need or solve a problem to improve economic development

  • Developing research policies in adherence to research ethics, intellectual property, and commercialization, and making sure these policies are observed
