The Center for Scholarship and Research (CSR) encourages, supports, and celebrates faculty scholarship, research, and creative production in light of Wheelock's vision, mission, values, and academic principles.

The Center, which is part of the Office of Sponsored Programs, elevates and makes more visible the role of scholarship on campus to faculty, staff, students, and prospective students. We make research more visible through our Speaker Series, as well as through electronic signage displays across campus. The speaker series features scholars who present their latest cutting-edge research at free forums open to the public.

All events are free and open to the public. Visit the Speaker Series Archive page to see speaker topics from previous years.
