Albany --  Albany State University is encouraging faculty members to do more research, and they're enjoying some success.  

ASU created the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to boost the university's research potential. Six faculty members shared the results of their projects on topics such as HIV and AIDS Prevention and Care, and smoking patterns of college students.

A stipulation of the grant for the research project is that a student be included as a research assistant.

"It teaches our students what it truly means to be a scholar and how you become a scholar by developing the procedures and adopting the canons of research," says ASU President Dr. Everette Freeman. "So for us this is what do we create new knowledge we disseminate new knowledge to our student and the community."  

Each faculty member receives between seven and ten thousand dollars for their pilot projects.
