Research at APU

Supporting Research Efforts at Azusa Pacific

Azusa Pacific University is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as an R2 Doctoral University, recognizing APU’s high level of research activity. One of the four emphases of APU’s academic vision is transformational scholarship, so it’s important that APU provide its faculty, staff, and students with the necessary tools, facilities, and support to conduct research and produce scholarship. This website is therefore designed with that in mind, providing a single source that introduces faculty, staff, and students to all of the available tools, resources, and services regarding their research and scholarship agendas.
