Responding to regional needs

Research Institute


Our professors share a common goal: to put you at the center of the educational experience. Our faculty members hold advanced degrees and have been published in the top journals in their field, but they focus on teaching first.

Whether they're collaborating with students on research projects in their community or offering guidance on career planning, you'll get the faculty support you need to turn your education into a rewarding career.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss with the community opportunities to put our students and faculty in place to help solve area public policy issues.
