Faculty In Action: Externally Funded Programs & Research Projects

Category: Alumni & Friends | Author:

EMU’s College of Health and Human Services faculty members not only transform the lives of their students by providing a world class education, they are also fiercely dedicated to making strides in and leaving a lasting impact on their respective areas of academic concentration.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the incredible work that our faculty and staff perform in externally funded research and scholarly programs. Since 2014, our faculty and staff members have participated in over 20 externally funded programs directly related to the subjects covered in our four schools – Health Promotion & Human Performance, Health Sciences, Nursing, and Social Work.

Click on one of the pictures below for an in-depth look at the research & projects that a few of our faculty members are involved in.
