Individual and Collaborative Research Products

Several research publications and presentations have been made by the PRISE Research Group since the project began. These presentations include posters and presentations at state, regional, and national professional meetings. Dissertations, white papers, policy briefs and other scholarly products allow members of the PRISE Research Group to communicate with other researchers about topics of research related to the PRISE agenda that require explanation and description.
