Academic Research

Faculty in nearly every university department participate in scholarly activities including original research and creative endeavors, and student participation is often an integral part of such activities.

Students who participate with faculty in creative activities and research experience are often set apart from others in the job market and application to graduate school.

The university supports these activities by providing academic credit, space and monetary support for materials, logistics and travel to conferences through a variety of funding sources.

Successful faculty and students regularly attend regional and national conferences.
