You might think that teaching and research are completely separate and distinct activities. Actually, they are deeply interrelated. Research stimulates critical reasoning and analysis. It creates knowledge and a deeper understanding of the discipline by seeking to explore unanswered questions and extend knowledge in a discipline.
And the results of this entire process end up in the classroom and in academic, practitioner, and business journals.
Our faculty, actively engaged in research, are relevant and competent in the classroom, designing curricula and classroom experiences that better prepare students for successful careers in a dynamic environment.
