UDM is Research

Research at UDM: Universities expect their faculty to contribute to  "peer-reviewed research."

That means three things:

UDM supports research

University of Detroit Mercy supports scholarly and creative activity. We value the research that is done on all three campuses by faculty and students. The ability to engage students in these projects supports their intellectual curiosity and encourages discussion, debate and discovery. Research also provides an opportunity for students to learn more about their chosen discipline and contribute to its body of knowledge.

UDM celebrated faculty authors for the first time in March 2006. All books written by current faculty members, at the time, were included in the initial celebration, regardless of publication dates. Two years later, in addition to books, faculty-authored book chapters, journal articles and conference proceedings were added to the celebration. During this time, the events were referred to as "Celebration of Faculty Authors." In 2010, the event, renamed "Celebration of Scholarly Achievement: Publications, Posters, Projects," was expanded to include student work. Brief oral presentations about student research were included in the 2013 celebration.

The University keeps a complete digital archive of faculty and student publications, beginning in 2010.
