Research Centers

In addition to the large research institutes, there are nearly 90 research centers housed within academic departments or as subsets of the research institutes themselves. They can be found in all fields of the university, including humanities and the arts, social sciences, natural sciences, engineering, business and law.

The centers cover a broad range of topics, from multicultural education and astrophysics to glaciology and prevention of violence. They grant fellowships, sponsor internships, house archives for research, conduct competitions with cash awards, host public debates and programs and support graduate study in many other ways.

Establishing/Reauthorizing a Research Center
The formation of research centers begins with the submission of proposals to the Vice Chancellor for Research, per the center establishment procedures. Centers require periodic review, per the reauthorization procedures.
