Goals and Strategies

Goal 3: Advance Research and Creative Activity

We are developing research that positively impacts lives and breaking down traditional barriers so researchers and students can collaborate on big problems.


  1. Provide the physical space, policies, information systems, technology, budgetary and human resources to sustain and grow research and creative activities.
  2. Develop an integrated, transdisciplinary, and accessible research ecosystem dedicated to student excellence and success.
  3. Invest in a Grand Challenges initiative to propel a transdisciplinary model for research and creative activity.
