RESEARCH @ TCU Leading the Way
Welcome to Endeavors magazine.
For 150 years TCU has educated individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community through research and creative activities, scholarship and service. Our commitment to the liberal and fine arts has led to creative works that inspire and challenge.
Inclusive teams of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff work together to produce research that advances scholarship and practice in business, education, medicine, and the applied, natural and social sciences. This issue of Endeavors demonstrates how we foster a culture that drives the creation of new knowledge to impact our regional and global community while preparing students for tomorrow’s knowledge-based economy.
We are intentional about displaying an array of research and creative activities at TCU in every issue of Endeavors. The teacher-scholar model has long served as our foundation for engaging students in and out of the classroom. Our faculty and student teams conduct research that protects natural resources, promotes health and well-being, educates on societal issues and informs business practices.
Thank you for the opportunity to share a glimpse into our academic mission, which has been the hallmark of the TCU experience for 150 years. We invite you to join us as we Endeavor to impact our communities for another 150 years.
