Faculty Research

The Value of Faculty Research

Ongoing faculty research benefits students, the College of Charleston, and society, as well as the individual scholar. When they are engaged in research, our faculty model for our students the excitement of continuous learning.

Today's students need to understand not only the methodology of the learning approach to problem solving, but also the personal fulfillment (and the joy) that comes with it. Students at the College work closely with our faculty, learning through their research the discovery process used to generate further understanding and knowledge.
