Why do research?

Research is exciting! It will not only expose you to a discipline’s current practices and trends, but also provide you with an opportunity for personal and professional growth.  While learning more about the world and contributing to our knowledge of it, you may figure out what you want to do in it and gain valuable skills that will help you to accomplish your goals.

Why share research?

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is nearby, does it make a sound? There are ways to answer that question.  Whether conducted by an individual or by a group, research does little good unless it is shared with colleagues and peers for discussion and information.
