Research & Scholarship

Welcome

Dr. Stephany Schlachter

Lewis University is pleased to showcase many of the fine projects that have been developed by our faculty and students, as well as additional ongoing research projects. This web site also presents funding opportunities and resources for our faculty.

In the spirit of our Catholic and Lasallian Mission, these activities actively engage our students in learning and in service to others. In addition to student learning, our faculty, in partnership with students are making major advances in research, and putting concepts into practice to solve real world problems and to advance the quality of life.

Increasingly our faculty are working in interdisciplinary teams on research being conducted in partnership with local and international corporations, laboratories and federal agencies. Our new Science Center will continue to have a significant impact on the surrounding community and region as we enter into future partnerships. Among our priorities is to address the national needs in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) areas important to the advancement of our country.

I invite you to learn more about the research projects underway here at Lewis University including the development of new chemical materials, microorganisms and related disease states, global market activities and new ways of teaching and learning. You will also see that research and scholarship at Lewis focuses on values as we address issues related to social justice, environmental responsibility and human dignity. We hope that you will join us in our celebration of scholarship and learn about how our faculty and students are creating a positive impact on this region, and making a real difference in the lives of others.

Sincerely,

Dr. Stephany Schlachter
Provost
