Centers of Excellence

Research Centers Promote Discovery and Scholarship

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is home to a number of research centers and institutes dedicated to the pursuit of academic knowledge. Faculty work within centers to explore research topics based upon common themes. Each Center generates outcomes in the form of publications and grants. Centers may also offer workshops to provide resources that faculty outside of the Center may apply to their personal research.
