2008 Summer Research Grants Awarded

October 13, 2008

College of Business Administration tenured and tenure track faculty are invited each summer to submit research proposals for summer support. The linkage between quality research and the advancement of instruction is well documented. The competitive assessment process and the college’s  resulting investment is designed to produce high quality research in the business disciplines through which the college can maintain and advance the curriculum content of all programs offered by a doctoral granting institution. The natural, symbiotic duality of teaching and research is central to the maintenance of our AACSB accreditation, to the continuous improvement process of programs offered to the people of our region, and to our campus mission of  Access and Excellence. 

The college award and assessment process involves the following guidelines:

  1. Only faculty with meritorious research records demonstrated within the last two most recent calendar years are eligible for proposal submission under this component of the research support program;
  2. Only faculty targeting quality journals in their respective disciplines that advance the research profile of the college and its faculty are eligible for grant award under this component of the research support program; and
  3.  Proposals from all eligible faculty are considered and supported to insure the broadest faculty engagement in order to employ all the resources available to the college during the summer period.
