In order to encourage focused research development, Newman University’s research strategy encourages the creation of formally constituted research centres. The research centres are a part of the structure of the Graduate School. Their aims are as follows:
- Support staff participating in research and scholarly activities through the development of an inclusive culture and supportive environment;
- Support the achievement of research excellence through focused growth, collaboration and development of applied research across the University and, where appropriate, with external partners;
- Work towards developing opportunities to secure external sources of research funding that will expand the range of current research activities.
