The Connecticut State University Research Foundation

The Connecticut State University Research foundation was established by the Connecticut General Assembly under Public Act 79-202 for the purpose of facilitating and promoting research activities among the four institutions that comprise the CSU system.

The Research Foundation operates on each CSU campus under the direction of the campus President in accordance with the regulations of the Foundation and all other relevant general University and State regulations.

Each campus has a Research Foundation Advisory Council, which, at Western, is the Research and Development Committee. The function of the Advisory Council is to advise the campus President on the operation of the Foundation, as well as the conduct of research and public service activities on each campus.
