Research

Lamar University faculty members, collaborating with both graduate and undergraduate students, continually break new ground and make important discoveries through their innovative research.

The university’s designation as a Doctoral Research University by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching is a powerful affirmation of Lamar’s high level of successful research activity.

External support for Lamar University research is strong with faculty members securing more than $13 million in federal, state, business and foundation grants to fund their inquiries. Funding sources include the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the National Endowment for the Arts, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Education and many others.

Through their remarkable work, some of which is featured in the Research Magazines section, these Lamar University faculty members are expanding the body of knowledge in their disciplines and enhancing student learning.
