If the Catholic intellectual tradition is the heart and soul of this University, research is its blood and bones. In creating Catholic University as a graduate research institution in 1887, the bishops of the United States sought to establish an institution that would go beyond the preservation of learning and teaching to also encompass the advancement of knowledge through research in all fields.
The history of research and discovery at Catholic University is voluminous.
