In accordance with the Mission of UIW, scholarly activity is guided by the principles of respect, truth, and fairness. Research is an integral facet of graduate study, and students are encouraged to seek publication of work done in pursuit of advanced degrees. In research outside the thesis or dissertation where close collaboration with faculty advisors occurs, it is entirely appropriate for publications to be co-authored. Order of authorship should be subject to mutual agreement, based on the nature and extent of the contribution by the parties concerned and in accordance with the accepted practice of the discipline.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects Operations (ORSPO) promotes, supports, and administers funding for research and scholarly activities throughout the University of the Incarnate Word community. 

The ORSPO is responsible for university research administration operations, ensuring compliance with sponsor rules and regulations, and managing UIW's research compliance committees and policies. The office also assists the UIW community with internal funding programs, disseminating funding opportunities, grants and research-related training and development, promoting scholarly activities and opportunities, and routing funding proposals for institutional approvals.
