Research and Creative Activities

The Research & Creative Activities Team within OU’s Center for Faculty Excellence is excited to work with OU faculty as they pursue research and creative activities throughout their career. We strive to support faculty individually while making resources available widely and transparently. We host information sessions and workshops throughout the year, meet individually with faculty in consultations, review internal and external funding proposals, and coach faculty in their development of impactful publications and presentations. In these efforts, we hope to help faculty communicate their work, partner with collaborators, secure funding, and broaden their impact on society.
