Definition of Research - Department of Social Science

The department membership participates in applied and theoretical research and scholarship through activities which lead to the application of utilization of knowledge.  The scholarly activities may include: continuing education and professional development in one's field; attendance, participation and presentations at professional meetings, conferences, workshops and in-service session; and/or publications.  Research is a responsibility of the department membership as a whole, but not necessarily of every member.
