Overview of TRI's Centers and Projects
TRI focuses on three fields - Education, Health, and Human Services. Our staff are organized into eight Centers, and our Grants Management Office (all listed below). We also manage the WOU Sponsored Research Office. Staff at TRI work across Centers depending on the needs of our current projects. Each project that comes into TRI is assigned to a specific Center based on the project's primary requirements. All projects receive the benefits and expertise of TRI as a whole.
