Concord University has a rich tradition of research and scholarly inquiry. Students have the opportunity to engage in original research and collaborate with faculty members both in and outside of the classroom. Explore our web site for more information about Research at Concord including the Human Subjects Review Board, CU Research Festival, Committee on Research, McNair Scholars Program, and Office of Sponsored Programs.
Students who engage in original research gain a deeper understanding of the material and an appreciation for what it means to work in his or her chosen field. They also benefit from working closely with faculty members and other students as they solve problems. Students can present their work at national and regional conferences, West Virginia’s Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol, and CU’s Research Festival. Additionally, participating in undergraduate student research has become an important part of gaining admission into graduate and professional programs.
