The Academy for Clinical Research & Scholarship (ACRS) is committed to promoting research and scholarship that enhances the health of clinical populations.  The primary focus of ACRS is building capacity and interdisciplinary partnerships to develop and translate knowledge to affect health outcomes. 

ACRS has two (2) primary goals:

  1. Building research and scholarship capacity for clinical research that improves health.
  2. Developing collaborative interdisciplinary partnerships to facilitate research/scholarship affecting health outcomes in clinical populations.


ACRS is working to establish strong partnerships with clinical agencies to synergize research and scholarship affecting health outcomes. Faculty participation, from all disciplines, is welcomed. If you would like to collaborate with ACRS, please contact ACRS Director, Dr. Patricia Crane or School of Nursing Director, Dr. Dena Evans.
