Temple University has distinguished itself as an institution with a rapidly growing research enterprise that is comprised of externally sponsored grants and contracts, distinguished scholarly projects, and outstanding creative works. An important goal of the Office of Research is to support faculty members and students to continue to excel in these efforts and celebrate their achievements.
Temple faculty continue to focus on use-inspired, fundamental and interdisciplinary research activities that address significant issues impacting society. Our faculty members have responded to this trend by developing and participating in the growth of multi-investigator, interdisciplinary programs that produce "cutting edge" research and technology that provide practical solutions to complex societal issues. These programs have increasingly produced discoveries that are successfully commercialized by our Office of Technology Development and Commercialization or otherwise disseminated into the public sector. Temple University is committed to playing a pivotal national and international role by establishing close ties with government agencies and the business community in efforts that include solution-oriented R&D, technology commercialization, and economic and workforce development.
Temple University's research enterprise will continue to foster the growth and development of innovative research programs that address important societal issues and critical national and global needs through building on our existing and emerging areas of strength. Our strategic approach to research program development, scholarship and creative works will continue to provide opportunities for achieving national and international prominence that will facilitate attracting and retaining outstanding faculty and students.
The research enterprise of the University is intertwined with our outstanding graduate and undergraduate research programs and greatly influences the content of our academic curriculum. We look forward to the exciting future of the research enterprise at Temple University and the discoveries, scholarship and creative works that our faculty and students will contribute to the nation and the world.
