Overview of TRI's Centers and Projects

Overview of TRI's Centers and Projects

TRI focuses on three fields - Education, Health, and Human Services. Our staff are organized into four Centers, and our Grants Management Office (all listed below). We also manage the WOU Sponsored Research Office as part of the Grants Management 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.

For more information about the current work at TRI, click on the Center icons, or any of the projects below each Center.
