Standard 5: Modeling Best Professional Practices in Scholarship

The professional education faculty at SCSU are involved in scholarly activity related to teaching and learning. They generate new knowledge through research and collaboration and are committed to disseminating that knowledge to their colleagues. Given its designation as a regional, comprehensive university, much of the scholarship produced by our faculty would be considered applied research.


In examining the scholarly production of unit faculty, a sample of curriculum vitae was taken, using every fourth faculty in alphabetical order (Exhibit 5.4.d.1). In reviewing the entries from 2009 to date on the 24 resulting vitae, there were:
