Council on Research

Research DPG is a Member

Because many of the Academy’s committees, projects and initiatives involve research to some extent, the Council on Research (COR) was formed in 2014 to coordinate communication and align the Academy’s research efforts.

The COR guides the Academy’s research-related committees in conducting research to:

  • Meet the needs of the membership and advance the Academy’s goals
  • Increase coordination among research-related projects and initiatives
  • Ensure the relevance and viability of the Academy’s various research endeavors

The Research DPG has a representative who serves on the Council on Research—find out who our rep is on the Leadership page. More information about the Academy's Council on Research can be accessed here.
