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 identifies as a key 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;
Assist UW Tacoma faculty to pursue externally sponsored research funding;
Promote the professional development of faculty through workshops that help faculty in all aspects of their research, scholarship, and creative activities;
Support student research experiences
Help the faculty to partner with public agencies and community groups in the mutual pursuit of publicly-engaged scholarship.
The Office of Research staff are currently working a hybrid combination of days on campus and working from home, maintaining full-service capacity. Email remains the quickest form of contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
