Office of Research and Creative Activity

Through your philanthropic efforts, you can support NDSU as it strengthens its status as an R1-ranked research university. By supporting the Office of Research and Creative Activity (RCA), you provide NDSU researchers and scholars the resources, professional development, facilities, and instrumentation they need to support tomorrow’s big ideas and translate their exciting ideas from innovation into practical use. Your investment will make many more big ideas (like the new NSF I-Corps entrepreneurial hub) a reality and help us recruit and retain the talent essential for R1. Help ensure that NDSU remains a research powerhouse and a true economic engine for our region.
