Research, Scholarship, & Creative Activities Resources
The Office of Research, Innovation, & Economic Development supports applications for external contracts and grants, ensures research compliance, and provides support for the Office of Undergraduate Research. The Office of Research, Innovation, & Economic Development also provides oversight of the many University Centers and Institutes, and administers various intramural awards to support research, scholarly and creative activity by faculty and students.
Teacher Scholars at Cal Poly Pomona are role models who actively promote life-long intentional learning to our students, are actively engaged in advancing their fields of inquiry, and are committed to blending teaching and scholarship into a single synergistic endeavor that results in a creative integration of the two roles.
SoTL treats teaching and learning in each discipline as worthy subjects for research by the teachers of that discipline. The fundamental process of SoTL is the same as other research: Ask a question, design as robust a study as necessary and possible to answer the question, perform the study and data analysis, and draw conclusions that may lead to further researchable questions.
Occasionally, small internal grant programs arise at the University. The Faculty Center administers some of these programs, and helps to publicize others. See the internal grants page for a list of programs, and watch your email for announcements.
CSU-Wide Funding Opportunities
The CSU system has several grant programs for research and scholarship. See the CSU-Wide Funding Opportunities list.
