  • General Information
    About University of Rhode Island

    Research, scholarship, and creative work are at the heart of the University of Rhode Island. As a land-grant public university, we were created to conduct research and then translate that research in ways that would improve the lives of the people of the state. Although our research mission has broadened considerably beyond that originally envisioned - it now encompasses numerous disciplines that could not be foreseen in the 19th century - research for the public good remains a distinctive attribute of the 21st century land-grant university. The University's designations as a sea-grant and urban-grant university are also reflected in the research and scholarship of our faculty, research staff, and students. The engagement of our students, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, in research, scholarship, and creative work is of critical importance to their education. I am convinced that the best approach to preparing students for their careers is to inspire them to discover, create, and innovate. Therefore we encourage our students to become an integral part of the community of discovery that is the modern research university. Given the dramatic rate of change that is already so characteristic of the 21st century, the human capacity for innovation has perhaps never been more important. The University of Rhode Island has a highly innovative faculty, and they are creating new knowledge, new capacities, and new ways to teach that will serve our students, the state, the nation, and the world extremely well."
