This page highlights grants that have been received by COE faculty. "My hope is that this listing provides our campus with a better understanding of the diversity of the high quality research conducted on our campus. I recognize that in some disciplines there are limited opportunities for external funding so that many scholarly, creative, or performing activities will not be represented by this list.” — Stephen Welter, Former Vice President for Research
