RESEARCH AND SCHOLARSHIP

Research and scholarship are at the heart of the University’s intellectual community. Villanova’s distinguished scholars—faculty, students and professional staff—are committed to the collaborative pursuit of knowledge and the application of our discoveries to better our communities and the human condition.

Scholarship and teaching are equally valued at Villanova, and their interconnection enriches the academic environment for both faculty and students. Our faculty embrace creative learning opportunities in the classroom and in laboratories, engaging undergraduate and graduate students as true partners in the research and creative process.
