Research & Professional Development

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs supports members of the Stockton Community in their scholarly, research and creative activities.

Institutional Research is where data and reports regarding enrollment, degrees conferred, graduation, and other special analyses are housed.

The Institutional Strategic Plan - also known as Strategic Plan 2025 Choosing Our Pathplays a crucial role in guiding Schools, programs, and units in connecting objectives to the pillars of Inclusive Student Success; Diversity and Inclusion; Teaching and Learning; Strategic Enrollment Management; Financial Sustainability; Campus Community, Communication, and Shared Governance. The Institutional Strategic Plan may also align with University-wide internal funding opportunities. By following the link provided above, you can find a copy of the Institutional Strategic Plan.

Mentoring Program.  It is the University's practice to assign a senior program member and a senior faculty member from outside the program to new faculty to assist them in the transition to the University and during the first number of years while on tenure track. The Deans and the Director of the Institute for Faculty Development work together for the new faculty mentoring program to assign mentors. Faculty external to the program are assigned on such possible considerations as shared professional interests, country of origin or similar social and cultural characteristics. A full explanation of the Mentoring Program is provided in the SFT Memorandum of Agreement.
