Alan Dreeben Research Center

The Alan Dreeben Research Center's (ADRC)mission is to enable faculty and student development through promoting active engagement in research and collaborative activities. In doing so, we demonstrate a dedication to service in the pursuit of knowledge and social justice, both locally and globally.

ADRC is about creating opportunities:

  • For faculty to turn concept into reality by connecting faculty with the resources to conduct active research.
  • For students to turn theory into practice by providing experiential learning on relevant quantitative and/or qualitative research projects.
  • For the University to venture beyond the classroom in collaboration with the community.
