Why Research?

Research is an essential and instrumental part of academia. Faculty build their knowledge, expertise, and skills upon continuous scientific and research endeavors. For our students, doing independent research, or assisting in research projects led by faculty, adds to academic experience and and helps to develop a wide-range of useful skills in critical thinking, qualitative and quantitative analysis, field work, survey methodologies, and more. The Valente Center's arts & sciences-focused research programs offer multiple opportunities for both faculty and students.
