This is a "teaching institution". How will you maintain an active research portfolio given the level of financial support provided for research by the institution?

1 Answer

Work ethic and commitment for contribution to the existing body of knowledge. I teach by example and do not believe in teaching without engagement in the field on a professional level.

Professional development in the area of contribution to the field outside the institution creates credibility through achievement and equity in the community of the field at large.
