Research

Research, both theoretical and practitioner focused, is the cornerstone of scholarly activities. Faculty members each develop, in conjunction with their division chairperson, a program of scholarly activity that relates to individual, division, and College needs. Expectations are that faculty members develop a research pipeline, that is, continuous scholarly work with projects in various stages of completion.
