Promoting a campus-wide culture of creative inquiry

The mission of the Villanova Institute for Research and Scholarship is to promote a vital and sustainable research culture at Villanova through resources and programs that strengthen research, community, and career advancement.  We work with faculty, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students to facilitate their success at all stages of research, scholarship and creative endeavor.

The Institute’s approach is shaped by Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic ideals of Veritas, Unitas, Caritas (Truth, Unity, Love). Our staff is committed to inclusive support for the varied forms, methods and traditions of inquiry and to the promotion of substantive, multidisciplinary engagement across the University’s colleges, departments and centers.
