Welcome to the Scholar Center Guide

The Scholar Center promotes and supports scholarly research by all members of faculty. Scholarly research conducted by faculty members who have completed doctoral studies within recent years is intended to further deepen their expertise in a specialist subject, and to produce relevant publications which may lead to further formal qualifications and certification. Collaboration involving senior faculty serving as mentors to junior faculty is highly encouraged in order to advance the scholarly mission of the University.

The Research Council provides collaborative faculty leadership through mentoring and support for the creation and dissemination of knowledge generated through research, scholarship and creative activities.
