Research Team (Collegium of Scholars)

Collegium of Scholars

I will be starting a 2018 research team in January 2017.   This will be a research and publishing team designed to create original scholarship.

If you are interested, please fill out the attached the Research Team Application.   The team will start February 1st.

Note: All student are welcome to apply.  Priority will be given to Dr. Allen’s advisees.

2018 Focus: Conference Papers/Presenations/Panels and first time author journal publications.   All outcome will be team projects rather than individual projects.


Here are some accomplishments of past research teams:
