Villanova Institute for Research and Scholarship
Strengthening research, scholarship, and creativity across campus
The mission of the Villanova Institute for Research and Scholarship is to promote a vital research culture at Villanova through programs, resources, and applied research projects that empower faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students in the pursuit of their scholarly aspirations.
Our approach is shaped by Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic ideals of Veritas, Unitas, Caritas (Truth, Unity, Love). We are committed to inclusive support for Villanova's scholars and their varied forms, methods and traditions of inquiry. We promote substantive, multidisciplinary engagement across the University’s colleges, departments and centers.
