Our mission is to increase research capacity by supporting faculty and students throughout the grant proposal development, post-award administration, and publication processes. By providing a robust infrastructure of expertise, resources, and exceptional customer service, we will increase scholarly productivity across the College.
Through relevant and rigorous research, College of Education faculty and students will contribute to Texas State's designation as a Research University and place the College at the forefront of local, state, and national discussions regarding research-based policies, programs, and practices in all College program areas.
