When staff and faculty participate in research projects, they strengthen their ties to industry and stay up-to-date with the latest trends in their field of expertise. The benefits of participating in applied research include professional development and enhanced teaching skills, and some staff and faculty have developed new college programming as a result of participation in an applied research project. The Office of Applied Research supports faculty research ethics applications and partnering agreements and helps navigate various funding opportunities.
