Hello, I would like to learn about research for deaf/hard of hearing students and how they are ELL (English Language Learners).

Hello Mabel,

Thank you for reaching out to our office regarding your interest in connecting with a research community that shares the same or simlar interest. 

In terms of how to locate current or ongoing research related to your area of interest, for starters, I would recommend the following:

  • Do a keyword search within the Hub may help you to connect with fellow researchers that share a similar research agenda. 
  • You could connect with a Special Interest or Interactive Group within the Hub. Link for more detail regarding groups of this nature:
  • You could review the different Research Centers for current/ongoing research projects, research agendas, blogs, and publications for topic similarity and make a connection that way. Being that your interest appears to be in the field of education, you could perhaps start a search of this nature within Center for Educational and Instructional Technology Research. Link:

I hope this is helpful. Please don't hesitate to reach out if we can be of further assistance.

Hello Everyone

I would like to know if there is a research area that covers incivility in academia. If not, how can I start one?

Secondly, another interest is going from a faculty member to becoming an administrator in academia and having faculty see one in their new position.

Thank you

Dr. Midge Elkins

Hi Dr. Elkins,

It sounds like both of these topics might have overlap with the broader area of leadership studies.  I would suggest checking out the Center for Leadership Studies and Educational Research to find other researchers with similar interests:

Thank you for the suggestion. I will look into the Center for Leadership Studies. My topic certainly does sound like a leadership issue.

I'm interested in research on behavorial changes of students participating in club activites instilling social values to elementary boys. We have two clubs that have shown a significent change in suspensions, absenteesim and improved test scores. I thought research into long term affects woould be interesting.
