Office of Scholarship Support

Providing you with resources to advance research, scholarship, teaching and learning

University of Phoenix is committed to advancing faculty research and innovation to help you develop new insights into teaching and learning so you can help students achieve more through education. Our Office of Scholarship Support is dedicated to providing our faculty with resources to advance research, scholarship, teaching and learning.

Our commitment is a natural extension of our 35-year tradition of quality teaching and learning. We encourage you and all University of Phoenix faculty members to conduct research that adds value to the University’s core mission of teaching and learning. In addition, we support research and innovation that addresses issues in your field or discipline, which can help you expand your expertise in the classroom.

Our Mission

The mission of the OSS team is to develop and provide resources for faculty and students to produce quality research projects — inside and outside of the University. The resources include financial, intellectual and technological support, as well as ethical guidance. The OSS also provides institutional communication with other scholarly and research organizations and documents the results of scholarship and research for the University.

We support faculty across the full life cycle of scholarship:

  • Readiness: By developing an organizational awareness and culture of scholarship, the University helps you stay aligned with research and innovation that furthers our educational mission.
  • Support: University of Phoenix provides financial support in the form of grants, fellowships and other resources to help make research possible at various levels of scholarly inquiry.
  • Execution: The Office of Scholarship Support answers questions, administers programs and provides additional resources for your research efforts.
  • Communication: We help you disseminate your work through internal sources like the Scholars Archive found on this site, as well as external resources of scholarly discourse, like the peer-reviewed Journal of Leadership Studies, managed in the University of Phoenix School of Advanced Studies.
  • Documentation: We are working to catalog, report, and recognize scholarship across the institution.
