About Us

As innovation becomes an increasingly important driver of our economy, the Office of Applied Research and Innovation at Sheridan is focused on creating unique opportunities for our students to work directly with our partners to address real-world challenges that strengthen our society and develop the leaders of tomorrow.

Our mission: to help grow fruitful, mutually rewarding connections between our students, faculty, and industry/community partners by providing experiential learning opportunities through solutions-based research projects.

As we transition to a distinct undergraduate teaching university, research will play an increasingly important role for our professors, administrators, and students.  

Our vision: Sheridan’s applied research and creative activities will be fully integrated within curriculum, strengthening the undergraduate professional education our students receive.
