Second Annual Summer Retreat
On August 12, 2014 our office hosted our second Annual Summer Retreat. Both President John Kelly and Provost Gary Perry attended our event and had a wonderful speech. Overall it was a success with approximately over 80 guests that included students, faculty and administrators. A thank you is extended to all that attended our event.
Benefits for Faculty participating in Undergraduate Research and Inquiry
Students are not the only beneficiaries of involvement in undergraduate research and inquiry; benefits to faculty have also been observed. These include enhanced mentoring and teaching, enhanced satisfaction with their career and personal development, achieved scholarly and research outcomes (e.g. presentations and publications), and integrated teaching and scholarship. Faculty who were themselves engage in similar activities as undergraduates identify the experience as being transformational for their careers.
