‘University-Wide Commitment to Supporting and Investing in Research’

The University of New Haven is committed to pursuing cutting-edge research and to ensuring that our undergraduate and graduate students have opportunities to work alongside our world-class scholars.

Directing our University-wide research portfolio is Ronald S. Harichandran Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE, our vice provost for research. A prominent scholar in civil and structural engineering, he has published more than 15 journal and conference articles. During less than a decade at the University, he has served as the principal investigator or co-principal investigator for competitively awarded external grants totaling nearly $6 million.

“Dr. Harichandran is a distinguished scholar, and his efforts have been instrumental in earning funding for and raising the visibility of the groundbreaking research that is taking place on campus,” said University of New Haven President Steven Kaplan, Ph.D. “At this exciting and critical juncture, we are fortunate to have an outstanding institutional champion to advance our University-wide commitment to supporting and investing in research.”
