Established in 2003, the Center for University Scholars is committed to cultivating faculty excellence in scholarship and teaching, to fostering intellectual and trans-disciplinary dialogue and to mentoring and nurturing the next generation of world-class scholars. Specifically, it supports dissemination of scholarship in peer-reviewed publications, juried exhibition and presentation at national conferences; assists faculty in submitting competitive grant proposals; encourages faculty-student research collaborations; and provides space for discussions of best practices in research and teaching. To fulfill this mision, the Center for University Scholars sponsors the Academy for Research and Scholarly Engagement, hosts the Faculty Engagement and Advancement Program, competitively awards graduate assistantships to faculty pursuing compelling and productive research agendas and subsidizes faculty travel to present research at academic and professional conferences.
