Research Resources and Services

Research development specialists support faculty by providing one-on-one consultations, proposal resources, targeted workshops and guidance throughout all stages of research. From the early stages of finding funding through helping with proposal development, facilitating collaborations, and helping with the submissions process, we are here for your success.

Community-Engaged Research

Community-Engaged Research (CER) is at the heart of WSU’s mission as a land-grant institution. The Office of Research supports community engaged research in a variety of ways including through the INSPIRE! community-engaged research initiative, which provides training to faculty and seed funding for CER. Our office has also compiled a set of guidelines to help researchers interested in adopting a CER approach to get a sense of some definitions and best practices.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility

The Office of Research is committed to supporting diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in the WSU research enterprise in alignment with WSU’s land-grant mission.
