Research at UL Lafayette

Under the leadership and direction of the Vice President for Research, Innovation, and Economic Development, we are responsible for overseeing University functions related to research and scholarship.

These include stimulating and supporting sponsored research, technology transfer and other economic development activities, the operation of the University Research Park and many of the research centers on campus. In addition, we are responsible for building strong, supportive alliances with local, regional, state, and national business, governmental, and industrial leaders that will result in bringing funding, equipment, services and other resources to the University.

In cooperation with degree granting colleges and academic units at UL Lafayette, we work to ensure that the University provides a setting in which quality research is initiated, nurtured, and completed.
