We are a collaborative community of scholars that values all forms of scholarly inquiry. Our students and faculty pursue research and scholarship that is intellectually stimulating, regionally responsive, and globally relevant. We confront the most pressing challenges of our society through foundational, translational, and interdisciplinary approaches to inquiry. In addition to the contributions our faculty make to solving these problems, they engage undergraduate, graduate, and professional students directly in this work, making research and scholarship an essential part of students’ educational experience. This exposure to the hands-on creation and application of knowledge prepares UNE students for success in careers and graduate study and as responsible citizens. 

  • Identify focal areas of research and scholarship that will distinguish UNE and have priority for future investment, faculty recruitment, and external fundraising.
  • Increase meaningful student involvement in research and scholarship.
  • Expand faculty involvement in scholarship and research and create a stronger UNE culture of knowledge production and application.
