Research Collaboration Corner

The Research Collaboration Corner is an inspiring and catalytic meeting place in the historic Corner Building at the entrance to the University, designed to enhance collaborations among small and large groups from the university community at all levels with a vision to promote excellence in research, scholarship, and entrepreneurship. 

Examples include: 

  • Students collaborations
  • Research meetings among Pan-University Institute participants to discuss new ideas and review progress
  • Meetings of participants in the various 3 Cavaliers projects to exchange ideas and mentor students
  • Research development activities that involve convening researchers across Grounds to learn about new opportunities 
  • Meetings that help promote the integration of research with education and community engagement 

Faculty, student groups, and staff are welcome to reserve the space for meetings to facilitate collaborations by contacting Sara Chiles ( With the availability of a multipurpose student center 1515 for all students and for a wide range of purposes, located on the corner at 1515 University Avenue, the Research Collaboration Corner will be focused on supporting meetings that foster a wide range of collaborations and is no longer available for general meetings or events.
