USD seeks faculty discussion on research scholarly activity with Presidents Research Roundtable
Because research and scholarly activity are integral to the University of South Dakota’s mission and are a part of the daily academic life of faculty and students, the President’s Research Roundtable is designed to encourage an open dialogue among faculty and administration regarding research.
“Research plays a prominent role at the University of South Dakota contributing to better opportunities for departmental growth, student development, and advances in medicine and technology,” stated Laura Jenski, Ph.D., vice president of research at USD. “The President’s Research Roundtable event is for our faculty and the campus community to learn more about USD’s research initiatives as well as to ask questions that will encourage further discussion about the significance of research at USD.”
In addition to Jenski, several USD faculty are participating as panelists in the President’s Research Roundtable, including John Dudley, Ph.D., associate professor of English; Gina Forster, Ph.D., associate professor of basic biomedical sciences; Tracelyn Gesteland, D.M.A., assistant professor of music; Amy Schweinle, Ph.D., associate professor, counseling in psychology and education; and USD President James W. Abbott. Angeline Lavin, Ph.D., professor, accounting and finance, will serve as moderator.
The format for the discussion will include 30 minutes to discuss prepared topics followed by 30 minutes for Q&A from the audience. Some of the prepared topics include research and teaching: complimentary or competing?; is research only for job creation?; assessing quality of research and creative scholarship; interdisciplinary research; graduate education online vs. on-campus; and goals for grant dollars.
