UWT Office of Research

As an urban-serving university, the UW Tacoma aims to "foster scholarship, research, and creativity  to address the challenging problems of our time and place."  In its 2016 Strategic Plan, the UW Tacoma identified it as a priority to "expand and support a range of research, scholarship and creative activity."

To serve these ends the Office of Research works with campus partners to:

  • Raise the profile of research, scholarship, and creative activities across the campus and in the community
  • Support student research experiences
  • Offer professional development workshops to help faculty in all aspects of their research, scholarship, and creative activities
  • Assist UW Tacoma faculty to pursue externally sponsored research funding
  • Help the faculty to partner with public agencies and community groups in the mutual pursuit of publicly engaged scholarship.
