part of providing a world class education is providing faculty with
opportunities to conduct relevant research in their chosen field.
Salisbury University’s Department of Graduate Studies and Research has a proven
track record for procuring substantial research grants which benefit faculty and
students as well as regional, national and international communities. Nearly 75%
of all faculty research grant proposals submitted are awarded, a percentage
which has climbed steadily since 2002. SU receives more than $3 million dollars
annually from various private and public agencies, such as the National Science
Foundation and the U.S. Department of Higher Education.
is research so important to an institution that is generally recognized as a
teaching university? By fostering a culture which values research as well as
academic excellence, SU attracts faculty who are not just great post-secondary
teachers, but also leaders in their fields. Faculty members who engage in
external research projects bring their knowledge, findings and experience back
to their classrooms to make their curriculum content even more relevant to their
undergraduate and graduate students.
