The Value of Student Research

 "Research is a focus that can be used to extend global connections, build new expanded graduate programs, and the real goal, obviously, is to prepare students to face an uncertain future. To have success with research, you have to have a passion for scientific inquiry and creative pursuit."

PAUL E. DICORLETO, PH.D.
VICE PRESIDENT FOR RESEARCH AND SPONSORED PROGRAMS
