The Office of Strategic Initiatives


The Office of Strategic Initiatives continues to "breathe life" into the University's Global Challenges by building institutional capacity and mobilizing partnerships for mutually beneficial collaboration. This includes creating strategic public-private partnerships (P3) to address challenging research questions with real-world applications, increasing opportunities for societal impact, enhancing investment in research facilities and equipment, expanding economic development potential, and increasing capacity to pursue high-value federal funding.
