Research and Creativity
MSU is the largest research university in Montana and the largest research and development entity of any kind in the state, which translates into many opportunities for students and faculty to conduct meaningful hands-on research and creative projects as well as economic prosperity for the area.
Guided by faculty on the Research Capacity Team, the Center provides resources that support the growth of faculty in achieving excellence research/creativity/scholarship, including workshops on mentoring, grant and publication writing and work-life balance. The Center offers programs that partner grant-successful mentors with faculty for grant writing support and collaborations, and offers a Research & Creativity Leadership Certificate.
