Established in 2010 and led by Dr. Mark Chun, the Center of Applied Research seeks to provide thought leadership among business professionals and academics alike. With a focus on values-centered leadership and social responsibility, the center endeavors to bridge the gap between business theory and business practice.

The mission of the Center for Applied Research is fourfold:

  1. To foster and promote relevant research that makes an impact on the business community and the world at large.
  2. To foster engagement between industry leaders and Graziadio School faculty for applied research opportunities.
  3. To demonstrate collaboration and cross-discipline thought leadership across business schools in the area of applied research.
  4. To provide support for applied research consistent with the Graziadio School mission.
