This month's Scholarship Council meeting was held on Monday, September 24th, with both virtual and in-person attendance. Dr. Kimberly Underwood, University Research Center Chair for the Center for Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Research presented on the state of the Research and Scholarship Enterprise (RSE). The Research and Scholarship Enterprise, out of the School of Advanced Studies, focuses on three areas: 1) research and scholarship support, 2) serving on policy and governing bodies, such as COR and SC, and 3) leading the University Research Centers.
Research Hub Newsroom
The Scholarship Council has an offical page on the Research Hub! Although the council has been around since 2014, it has yet to have a dedicated space for others to learn about it's purpose and activities. Visit their page today to learn more about the University of Phoenix's Scholarship Council.
Over 400 participants attended the 2018 Knowledge Without Boundaries Research Summit. This virtual event allowed attendees to view dynamic presentations, engage in thought-provoking question and answer sessions, all while being comfortably situated in their own homes. Yes, it was a highly successful event! And, we are working to make the 2019 KWB Research Summit even better.

In the last few weeks I have shared several academic organizations that sponsor conferences, journals and other forums for discussion about learning analytics. This acadenic organization also offers some excellent resources for scholars in the area of learning analytics. I hope that it is helpful for you and your research.
The Dissertation of the Year Award process honors the top dissertations in the School of Advanced Studies (encompassing business, healthcare, and education). The process for the Dissertation of the Year Award was competitive, with a large number of applications to consider. Reviewers considered contribution to their field, student progress through the dissertation milestones, and rational for nomination from the graduate’s committee chair.
The Summit offers several ways to compete for prizes while strengthening your scholarship skills by actively engaging in presentations, workshops, plenaries, and perusing through the University of Phoenix Research Hub. This year, two contests and three categories of visibility awards have been developed.
