How do we define research and inquiry?

Our definition of research for the purposes of the QEP focuses on inquiry. FAU faculty and students recognize inquiry to be a process and/or a product which encompasses intellectual traits that transcend subject matter divisions. Examples of such processes common to the disciplines may include questioning existing ideas, problem solving, thinking creatively, and exploring new ideas and the processes by which knowledge is discovered. This “contribution to the discipline or practice” may result in deliverables such as exhibitions, performances, works of art, presentations, publications, and other forms recognized within each discipline. As part of the display, students can submit work in any format to showcase that contribution of new ideas.
