Intrinsic Benefits of Research
Beyond the fundamental benefits listed above there is an intrinsic value of research that has been long recognized.
- A university with a strong research program establishes a stimulating environment in which scholars and teachers are searching for truth, and creating a spirit of discovery.
- The search for truth, the development of knowledge, and the growing of a research environment are valuable in themselves, independently of the significant pay-offs produced by a strong research program
