Linkage to University Mission
To provide a superior liberal arts education for our students and community, the institution must rigorously seek external monetary support to develop and present new concepts of viewing the world. The Office of Sponsored Scholarship and Programs is the mechanism that enables the faculty and researchers to pursue scholarly investigation and course/program development while fostering undergraduate research.
