Villanova Institute for Research and Scholarship
Strengthening research, scholarship and creative endeavors across campus
The Villanova Institute for Research and Scholarship (VIRS) offers professional development programs and resources that promote a vital research culture in which faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and doctoral students are empowered to pursue their scholarly and creative aspirations sustainably over their careers.
We offer inclusive support for Villanova's scholars and their varied forms, methods and traditions of inquiry. Our programs aim to promote substantive, multidisciplinary engagement across the University’s colleges, departments and centers.
Our approach is shaped by Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic ideals of Veritas, Unitas, Caritas (Truth, Unity, Love). We are committed to the goals of diversity outlined in the Villanova University Diversity Statement.
