Texas Christian University

TCU’s mission is to educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community. This ideal is the continuation of a quest that began in 1869, when brothers Addison and Randolph Clark dreamed of creating a college where men and women could acquire a classical education and develop character.

Research is yet another area disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday, Aug. 7, the Office of Research hosted a virtual Happy Hour Faculty Chat, where Floyd Wormley Jr., associate provost for research and dean of graduate studies, and LeAnn Forsberg, director of sponsored programs, share research plans for fall. Spoiler alert: While there are still restrictions on travel and limitations on lab capacity, the Office of Research has put together a full slate of virtual career, professional and grant development programs for both faculty and graduate students.
