1 College of Education Inaugural Research Symposium April 13, 2007 ESEARCHING EFORMING ECLAIMING R

2 Greetings, It should come as no surprise to anyone that Grambling State Universitys first college-the College of Education- has chosen to hold an Inaugural Research Symposium to promote the scientific endeavors (in education) of faculty and candidates within and outside the college. Many of our colleagues (and prospective colleagues) are engaged in prolific and noteworthy observations and queries that deserve recognition and attention; not to scrutinize, but to inform and to evoke critical thought. Individuals often perceive the notion of research-based inquiry as a mystical, esoteric process that few HBCU professionals have seriously mastered or obtained proficiency. Yet the term research, at its core, connotes repetition, review, and revision of scholarship and academic experiences. Aside intellectual grooming, conversancy in a specific content-area requires a commitment to the idea of perpetual visitation to what one has read, written, and learned inside and outside of the classroom. Without that, the pursuit of greater depth and breadth of understanding related to the subject is mute. Symposium, derived from a combination of Greek words which mean to engage in lively (mutual) discussion, captures the essence of what the collegiate environment should promote and perpetuate. Thus, the notion of a Research Symposium is seemingly congruent with the universitys mission and Presidents Judson vision of reclaiming our legacy by constructing (new) knowledge and practices that challenge, refute, and inform long-standing paradigms and models that shape our thinking. Seemingly, the College of Education Research Symposium creates the right milieu within which to facilitate the optimal exchange and critique of ideas, perspectives, and notions and we look forward to your participation in this perennial affair. Thank you Enjoy the conference… Sean Warner Dean of the College of Education College of Education Research Symposium April 13, 2007
