At Georgetown College, research unites faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students in the search for new knowledge through academic methods of inquiry. As senior scholars, faculty express and pursue the most ambitious questions in their fields while inviting inviting students to participate in a process of inquiry, exploration, and discovery. Students join in this research in classrooms, laboratories, archives, and the field, all the while gaining valuable training and mentorship from their faculty advisors. At the College, both the new knowledge generated by research and the process of inquiry itself are central to the education and formation of students.
