 Research Grants 



Message from the Dean

The College of Health, Environment and Science has a strong commitment to supporting student-faculty and faculty research endeavors, priority is given to those proposals including students in the research process.  In the past three years we have funded 13 proposals and we hope to continue expanding available resources as research interest grows

Goals of the Research Committee

In 2001, the CHES identified the need to establish a research committee.  The purposes of this committee are:

  • To foster opportunities for new research projects.
  • To provide support for faculty/student or faculty research projects.
  • To promote interdisciplinary collaborative research.
