Research at Baylor has long been an important part of the academic life of the University. The faculty's
standing commitment to excellent teaching, scholarship and research continues to produce outstanding graduates
at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The current strategic plan, Pro Futuris,
Baylor's aspiration to develop into one of America's leading Christian research universities, promises to
dramatically strengthen the current research environment in the coming years.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research aids faculty members from all academic units in identifying, obtaining
and managing the funding needed to support their research and scholarship. Internal "seed" funding, matching grant
proposal funding, searchable on-line funding databases, grant writing seminars, proposal support and travel awards
to national funding agencies are only a few of the services provided to the faculty by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research.
The Vice Provost for Research also acts as Baylor's representative in pursuing partnerships / collaborative
agreements with entities outside the institution. The Office of the Vice Provost for Research can assist Baylor
faculty and private industries in negotiating sponsored research, technology transfer and licensing opportunities,
and welcomes the opportunity to discuss collaborative research and scholarship pursuits that can advance the
academic mission of Baylor University.
