Research Centers help to maximize the efforts of faculty who are researching similar or complementary issues. Through a variety of grants and other funding instruments, research centers are focused on broad or sometimes more narrow topics, and can be found across the school or specific to one department. Centers are often partnerships with other schools and entities, and many are very active within communities here in New Orleans.
