A broad campus community
The Illinois research community is vibrant, but dispersed across multiple colleges and research institutes.
Bridging Departments and Disciplines
The Research Development Community, a campus-wide organization that supports the exceptional scholarship and research excellence that is the hallmark of the Illinois research enterprise, works to bridge departmental silos.
We collaborate, navigating institutional barriers to enhance information flow and share ideas and resources.
Support and Success
Our ultimate goal is to provide a superior level of support across the University's scholarly community.
