Research

The Research Component provides opportunities for faculty and staff to grow as scholars and, in turn, benefit the University's students by improving the quality of their academic experience and by providing opportunities for faculty/student collaborative research. In addition, the Research Component will help the University respond to the growing needs of the community and region for research consultation and problem solving.
