Strengthening the ability for faculty to conduct cutting-edge research is a top priority at Dedman College. The Dean’s Research Council provides competitively awarded seed funding for faculty research. This support helps our faculty to compete for larger grants and fellowships from outside SMU. For every $1 invested in the Dean’s Research Council grants, faculty win an average of $11 in outside funding. Strong research programs have a direct impact on the quality of educational experiences available to our students. 100% of donations to the Dean’s Research Council go toward faculty research.
