Harrisburg University has grown into one of Pennsylvania’s premiere research institutions.
And to encourage our professors to continue to look beyond and work with students in and outside of the classroom, university President Dr. Eric Darr annually awards our faculty Presidential Research Grants.
Our professors and students are poised to protect the environment, launch the next revolutionary technology, transform skin-graft surgeries and so much more.
This year, Dr. Darr helped fund a record 18 projects at HU. And on Aug. 22 the university gathered to learn more about these revolutionary projects during the First Annual Harrisburg University Faculty Showcase.
