Our Research Agenda

The Office of Digital Research and Scholarship is invested in exploring several specific topics. These topics guide the types of work we do—the projects we work on, the research we conduct, and the activities that we participate in every day.


We promote digital literacy in various forms. Specifically, we study digital knowledge production in the classroom and beyond. We research new ways to expand the digital competencies of the campus community.


We explore the new ways that research is conducted and disseminated in a digital-centric environment.


We are fully committed to openness in higher education. We make our materials, tools, and data as openly available and as readily accessible as possible, across many access points.


We examine and interrogate the tools and methods for project development and implementation that facilitate the sustainability and long-term success of digital projects.
