About The Center for Research and Innovation
The CR&I traces its roots back to the 1950s. Since then, the faculty leading the program have been professionally involved in research, industrial relationships, and student mentoring.
Developments over the past 60 years, from the labor of faculty and students to numerous grants and other sponsors, have allowed Taylor to perform research and innovate with excellence.
The mission of the Center for Research & Innovation (CR&I) is to amplify the talents and passions of students and faculty through innovative research, entrepreneurship, and partnerships thereby invigorating the community and impacting the world.
The CR&I is a comprehensive entity that provides resources for faculty and students to pursue their goals. This includes facilities and equipment, seed funding, and administrative and expert support.
Research Training Program (RTP): Faculty and students excel in theoretical, experimental, and applied research. This research wing of the CR&I includes the Science Research Training Program and the Humanities Research Training Program.
