IPS Funding Bounces Back in FY 2003

Reaping the Benefits of Integrated Research and Classroom Instruction

Renewed Emphasis on Student Discovery

 

Reaping the Benefits of Integrated Research and Classroom Instruction

Recent gains in IPS funding reflect in part a renewed commitment among faculty investigators and administrators to ensure that research and education at MU continually reinforce one another. "Research, instruction and public service are integrated and inseparable activities in a major research institution such as MU," says Jim Coleman, vice provost for research. "The excitement that characterizes intellectually and creatively engaged researchers and scholars enhances their performance in the classroom. This inspires their teaching and creates an environment of enthusiastic learning in students. Furthermore, the integration of research and education generates a synergy that helps to make certain that the findings and methods of research are quickly and effectively communicated to the broader community. This communication is essential for MU to fulfill its mission as a land-grant institution and effectively transfer the knowledge created at the university into solutions for the problems of people in the community."
