About us

Our research mission 

The research mission of the University of Victoria is to benefit society through the advancement and application of knowledge, creative and artistic expression, and the creation of research-inspired educational programs.

A leading research university

UVic has established its position as a leading research university in Canada by building upon our areas of established and emerging strength, by securing the support needed to sustain our research growth, and by promoting the mobilization and application of knowledge for societal benefit.

Supporting research

The Office of the Vice-President Research (OVPR) provides guidance for UVic’s research agenda at the institutional level. This includes setting strategic research priorities and developing initiatives to support research to ensure that UVic research continues to grow and prosper.

Office of Research Services (ORS) staff help faculty maximize their research potential. They provide advice about research opportunities, support for developing research proposals, and assistance with obtaining the required regulatory approvals. ORS also assists faculty with developing contractual agreements that describe the necessary legal provisions such as the protection of intellectual property.
