Communities of Scholars Program

The Communities of Scholars (CoS) Program was launched by the Office of Research and Engagement as a way to encourage the growth of research affinity groups that cross disciplinary boundaries. Each CoS is composed of UT researchers from multiple departments, colleges, and/or units that are united by a shared research theme or topic area. Objectives of CoSs may include assessing collective research strengths, networking, building research collaborations, and pursuing external funding.
