Elevating creativity through meaningful research.

Faculty research is integral to the vibrant intellectual, scholarly, and creative community at the College of Humanities & Fine Arts. The areas of interest and investigation found among its members cover an extensive range of disciplines, subjects, and forms of artistic expression. In addition to the approaches taken by individual faculty members, collective efforts focused on broad and interdisciplinary applications occur in the college’s research centers, institutes, and laboratories. The college is also home to several academic journals and publications that reflect faculty research and creative interests.

From the pursuit of creativity in the performing and visual arts to intellectual inquiry into the fundamental basis of our existence, and from the scholarly exploration and documentation of our present and past to the investigation of languages, literatures, and cultures, the Office of the Associate Dean for Research promotes a range of opportunities that support and encourage these activities.
