The Office of Research Development (ORD) supports efforts to develop extramural research funding proposals, research activities, and major multi- and interdisciplinary research initiatives, including:

  • Advice and support in developing successful proposals that blend faculty expertise with funding opportunity requirements.
  • Project management support for large research conferences hosted by UT Dallas.
  • Expand UTD’s capacity to pursue major multi- and interdisciplinary team based research initiatives.
  • Promote growth in campus extramural funding for research and graduate training.
