A Culture of Inquiry
The intellectual vibe on our campus is sparked by our faculty members’ own compelling need to ask more. They share the output of their innovative research and scholarship in a variety of ways — from presentations at conferences and exhibits in museums, to published works and performances that take place everywhere from Worcester to New York to Bali.
The College places a premium on generously funding and facilitating faculty research opportunities:
- Every tenure-track faculty member is given a one-semester pre-tenure research leave to pursue a fully paid period of research.
- One of Holy Cross’ greatest strengths lies in our ability to connect accomplished faculty scholars with hardworking students, forging a professional relationship that benefits everyone involved.
