Technology and Research Support

The Center for Innovation in the Liberal Arts (CILA) provides opportunities to learn about and discuss teaching and learning in higher education.

The Center for Interdisciplinary Research (CIR) provides academic year support for faculty conducting data-based research or mentoring data-intensive student projects, through drop-in office hours and dedicated collaborations.

The Collaborative Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (CURI) program provides opportunities for faculty to collaborate with enthusiastic and high-quality undergraduate students on research projects during the summer and the academic year.

Instructional Technology promotes new technology, develops training opportunities, and provides technology consulting services to faculty and staff, including the Digital Scholarship center at St. Olaf (DiSCO).

Faculty Research Support is available through St. Olaf Libraries. Each department has a liaison librarian who assists faculty with research instruction, assignment design, preparing new courses, and boosting library resources when needed.

The library’s Bridge2 supplies a robust selection of search tools and other resources.

Seminars, workshops and events, including those linked to the Boldt chair and the Lutheran Center, the Institute for Freedom and Community, and the Taylor Center, are also offered.
