The Center for Research (CFR) promotes quality research practices, scholarship, and creative endeavors through its key activities. CFR activities include coordination of the university’s:

  • Institutional Review Board
  • Research Advisory Board
  • Provision of Research Integrity Training and Research Workshops
  • Annual Symposium for Research Scholarship and Creativity
  • Research Guidelines & Resources
  • Annual Faculty Research & Scholarship Report

Through the coordination of these activities the CFR plays a vital role in supporting students and faculty in the production and dissemination of authentic, ethical and impactful research, scholarship and creative endeavors.

By combining the diverse research strengths, scholarship and creative activities of Madonna University faculty and students we create a collaborative and dynamic environment for learning, knowledge generation and real-world problem solving that contributes to the economic, scientific, and social welfare of our community and society.

This website provides access to our university Academic Research Policies, Procedures, Guidelines, Research Integrity Training Resources, Institutional Review Board Guidelines, and eIRB application processes for ensuring the basic rights and protections of research participants.
