DePaul University Academic Affairs > Faculty Resources > Scholarship
Scholarship in many of its forms
— research, outreach, creative activities, pedagogical research
— has been recognized as an important part of our academic mission to serve as an incubator for innovation, creativity, and discovery. In support of scholarship, the University provides research grant programs, awards and resources for its students, staff, and faculty to pursue ground-breaking ideas in many disciplines.
Scholarship is expected of all tenure-track and tenured faculty members and is conducted in an extraordinary range of interests at DePaul. For university expectations toward scholarship, please consult the
Faculty Handbook, particularly Chapter 3 (Evaluation of Faculty), for more specific guidance about the types of activities that DePaul classifies as faculty scholarship. For departmental and College expectations toward scholarship, please contact your Department Head and your Dean's Office.
Our faculty and students work to find solutions and answers to a range of challenges and questions and to make a lasting impact. Research at DePaul is happening in every discipline from music to biology to computing. Fostering collaborative research opportunities across disciplines in not only a goal, but a way in which DePaul seeks to be innovative. To learn more about research at DePaul, visit the
