Collaboration brings results.

The University's research is accomplished through interdisciplinary collaborations among all academic departments, creative contributions from the future workforce (our students) and substantive partnerships with corporations and leading national research institutes.

Throughout the year, Research faculty come together in various forums to showcase and share their research and to continue to foster the collaborative partnerships that is a unique aspect of the University—these partnerships drive our excellence in innovation, invention and ingenuity!

One such forum is the annual Faculty Research Symposium.

The faculty also meet on a regular basis for seminars and lectures, including the lunch-time informational lecture series, Enlightened Bites, hosted by the Vice Provost for Research, Julie Chen.
