Research that Reaches Out - Integrating Research and Service at Mercer University
Mercer University is pleased to announce our Research that Reaches Out initiative, which began fall 2015. The initiative is specifically designed to equip students in our traditional residential undergraduate program with the skills required to engage in sophisticated research aimed at solving real problems facing humankind. We believe that the successful implementation of this plan will help us achieve our ultimate aim: to inspire students to use their gifts and talents to live lives of meaning and purpose.
The full QEP document is available as a downloadable PDF.
