Faculty Research Consortium
The Vincentian Institute for Social Action was created to provide faculty and students with an academic platform to address issues of social injustice. Responsible for the academic integrity of the Institute is the Faculty Research Consortium (FRC). The FRC is a select group of interdisciplinary faculty members who have demonstrated teaching, research and scholarly expertise in areas related to community service, civic engagement and social responsibility. Guided by a Chair, the Consortium provides leadership for service initiatives which impact impoverished communities through research. The Faculty Research Consortium exemplifies the Vincentian Mission through scholarship and research. As a strategic planning group for the institute, the FRC is dedicated to ensuring the highest quality experiences for students, faculty, and community partners by evaluating outcomes of all programs.
