The School of Advanced Studies (SAS) has formed research centers designed to engender disciplinary specific advanced learning communities for our doctoral students and faculty. These research centers will make a meaningful social contribution to their communities by influencing change in their fields through refining research skills and building theoretical knowledge. Together doctoral students and faculty will focus on real problems in their respective fields through the development of solutions using research and reflective dialogue.
The School of Advanced Studies staff continues its monthly internal book club with "The Demon-Haunted World" by astrophysicist Carl Sagan.
This article has been prepared based on Dr. Kate Andrews' fellowship project at CEITR with the support of the center. Congratulations to Dr. Kate Andrews!
