Initiative for Interdisciplinary Research Design and Analysis



IIRDA's mission is to serve as a resource that meets the need for state-of-the-art research support in a comprehensive, rigorous and interdisciplinary way. IIRDA’s mission is realized by (1) increasing external funding to the level that aligns with the university’s emerging research university trajectory, (2) serving as the primary point of contact for faculty seeking expertise in the design, analysis and publication of research at the highest level, and (3) offering graduate-level courses specific to all types of research methodology and analysis that leads to a certificate in research, measurement and statistics.
