Research Across Campus

The primary purpose of the academic programs at Elizabethtown College is focused on teaching and learning. However, this primary focus is further sharpened when faculty members engage in externally funded research and programs to deepen their expertise and contribute to the creation of knowledge. In most instances, our students participate in the research and programs and gain real world experience under the supervision of their faculty mentors.

The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs works closely with faculty and staff, the Office of the Dean of Faculty, the Development Office and with other offices across campus to support and administer externally funded research and programs.

The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs maintains partnerships with several external organizations. One long-standing partnership is with the Innovation Transfer Network (ITN). In ITN's latest blog, Faculty Liaison Spike Moyer provides a nice snapshot of some of the successful projects and efforts at Elizabethtown College.  Please stop by Spike's blog and learn about a few highlights of Elizabethtown College's Research Across Campus.  The blog is found at:
