VP for Research and Innovation
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation (VPRI) is responsible for the integration and enhancement of research activities across UTA. The Office of the VPRI supports university-wide strategic growth activities, including multidisciplinary topics like environmental sustainability, innovation, energy systems, and biosciences.
We seek out the untested boundaries of knowledge with research centers in every discipline. We partner with local businesses to commercialize discoveries. Our Center for Bilingual and ESL Education finds the best ways to educate across cultural divides. Our Amphibian and Reptile Diversity Research Center illuminates creatures like the rarely seen Mexican mole lizard. And those are just a few examples.
Our efforts have earned us the classification as a R1: Highest Research activity university, according to the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. With this new classification, UTA joins a distinguished group of 115 institutions including Harvard, MIT and Johns Hopkins in the “highest research” category.
See what research means to us. And what our research means to the world.
