What is RIPL?

The Research, Innovation, and Partnership Lab (RIPL) is a collaborative project startup environment for bringing ideas to life at Lindenwood University. RIPL services are available to LU faculty, staff, and students at all stages of research, scholarship, or creative activity development. You may be considering an innovation in campus resources or services. You may be developing your research or scholarly portfolio. You may have a specific idea you would like to connect with research design, project development, and funding resources. The aim of RIPL is to support and accelerate the life cycle of your project.
