I was reading: Research Centers & Partners - UD

I've been reading about the University of Dayton (UD) and Duquesne Unvieristy ( Duquesne). Each university's style of giving seems to differ based on what I have read so far. I do not know if I am comparing apples with oranges or if  I am jumping to conclusions.  Duquense's giving is partially linked to access to scholarships and there is also a variety of Research and Development areas. UD's  research and development areas are also widespread and it appears that they can also link up with other major donors/ projects such as Samaritan Purse for two way linkages, or with  Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation  However those questions are for strategic planning sessions; where entities assess where they are in relation to where they would like to be given the environment in which they operate.

Our excellence in research isn't limited to just the sciences. We also feature centers that connect the campus community in a common goal—the search for knowledge. The International Marian Research Institute and the Business Research Group are prime examples—and there are more. Across all disciplines, the University of Dayton continues a tradition of leadership and excellence.

The various institutes and centers you'll find connected to the University of Dayton work to advance social justice issues, business leadership practices and ethics and service opportunities for all. By bringing the larger community together to face today's challenging questions, students are exposed to more influences and ways that will ultimately allow them to better adapt in an ever-changing world.

These centers and institutes also enable us to constantly expand and strengthen our community and our intellectual curiosity, helping us to bring innovative solutions to problems of all sizes, all around the globe. Here is a bit of info on some of the institutes and centers which are associated with UD:
Connecting researchers, students and servant leaders, our centers and institutes unite campus in a multicultural environment to advance social justice issues, business leadership practices and ethics, and service opportunities for all. That's just the beginning of the work done by our pioneering institutes and centers.
