Office of Research & Graduate Studies

  • Faculty Research Support
    From seed money to research assistants, the Office of Research Development has UIW faculty covered. Do you need an extra hand with a project? Or perhaps are ready to seek larger, external funding dollars? No matter the need, we are ready to help. Contact us at any time to discuss your project and goals.
  • Student Research Support
    Do you know a student in need of research support? We can provide assistance with research support, project funding, faculty mentor support, and travel assistance for presentation.
  • Research Compliance
    The Office of Research Development serves as the hub for UIW's Institutional Review Board, clinical trial registration, responsible conduct of research, and university research policy operations. We conduct on-demand training as needed and will always gladly review proposals and active projects for continued compliance.
  • Graduate Student Support
    Current graduate students are encouraged to seek learning assistance, writing development, and social support through our Graduate Support Center.  UIW's GSC is the nationally-recognized product of a Promoting Postbaccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans (PPOHA) Program Title V grant.
  • Theses, Dissertations & Doctoral Projects
    Students in all phases of thesis, dissertation, or doctoral project work can find required forms, UIW's graduate student stylebook, and assistance editing their work. Contact us any time.
  • Showcasing UIW Accomplishments
    We are proud to be Cardinals – and proud of what our Cardinal researchers and scholars do. Join us for Research Week, our campus-wide, multidisciplinary research exhibition, and you will see why.
