About Us

The mission of RISD Research is to provide the necessary support and resources to faculty, staff and students to develop their ideas into fundable projects and guide them through a successful and insightful research process. Through these projects, which can range from individual inquiry to external partnered projects, we hope to expose our faculty, staff and students to the unique challenges of working with collaborators, help them understand the professional and practical dimensions of their work, and expand their curricular opportunities. The overarching goal of RISD Research is to develop projects that integrate the core educational experience with wider environmental, social, and business contexts worldwide.
