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

That means three things:

Why Research? - Faculty Author Totals

2013 - 2012 - 2011 - 2010 - 2009 - 2008 - 2007 - 2006

The answer goes right to the heart of why universities exist.

Universities are places where students learn to think critically and to understand reality from many different perspectives.  Universities also give grades which testify to a student's competence.  The faculty who teach critical thinking and evaluate student achievement had better know their business.  Universities represent the best in the human desire to understand things accurately and wisely.   Scholarship depends on many people working at the research and editing process in an on-going effort to "get it right."   UDM expects its faculty to be practicing scholars as well as classroom teachers.
