The School of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) Office of Research supports and encourages faculty research and scholarship across its many academic disciplines, which reflect the School’s mission and are central to the health and well-being of individuals, children, families and the community.

A close working relationship with HHS research staff can be indispensable when preparing and submitting proposals for external funding. The office staff welcomes suggestions from faculty about innovative ways to promote scholarship within HHS. Researchers are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the support services provided by the Office of Research, as outlined on these pages.

The level of support in the Office of Research reflects the Dean’s strong commitment to the research enterprise.
