The main role of the research committee, whose membership rotates, is to stimulate and facilitate research activities in the college for fellow faculty. This is why each member has a specific methodological specialization. Faculty members are also encouraged to make an appointment to speak with specific committee members on matter of research design. The committee also supports the Director of Research.
