As an independent graduate institution, CGU is striking in its global linkages and partnerships, innovative in the ways it teaches, and responsive in its research to social issues and needs.

As we are closing in on APPAM’s deadline for abstract submission, take a moment to reflect on what motivates you to go the extra mile in your research. It’s my experience that it usually takes an extra mile, and probably two, to bring that abstract, presentation, or paper to completion. In those moments, when perhaps the last thing you want to do is revisit a particular piece of research, what pushes you to go ahead and try to make it even better?
