General Statement

The search for new information and understanding is as important to the University as the transmission of existing knowledge and understanding. A number of programs, services and policies encourage faculty creative activities. Consistent with the land-grant philosophy, cooperative efforts in theoretical and applied research stimulate both disciplinary and interdisciplinary endeavors. The Office for the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies facilitates such endeavors. Creativity in the arts as well as basic and applied research are faculty activities that are expected and encouraged by the University.
