In response to many requests from faculty members and Deans, another category of organized research program was created: School Center.

These school-based research organizations may be approved by Deans for a defined period of time. The designation as a "School Center" may be advantageous for collaborative research efforts when submitting proposals for gifts, grants, and contracts to extramural sources.

Recognized School Centers are listed below and can be filtered by affiliated school (Note: some centers claim multiple affiliations and therefore will appear under more than one school).
