Summer Faculty Research Support
Annually, the Harrah College of Hospitality funds a competitive Summer Research Support program to help promote and support faculty engagement in quality research and scholarly pursuits. This is a grant competition open to all full-time college faculty. The final requirement for the program is the formal submission of an academic paper to a college-designated Tier 1 or Tier 2 journal. The application process typically begins in the spring semester.
The Harrah College of Hospitality makes active use of Digital Scholarship, hosted by the University Libraries. Digital Scholarship captures, preserves, and shares the intellectual output of UNLV faculty, staff, students, and collaborations with other stakeholders. Research and scholarly archived output includes: articles, monographs, audio/visual presentations, working papers, technical reports, conference papers/posters, theses/dissertations, data sets, and publicly-funded research. Most UNLV Professional Papers are hosted on this site. Typically, the most downloaded research and professional papers are those produced by the Harrah College of Hospitality.
Researchers and graduate students in the Harrah College of Hospitality use an electronic data gathering and analysis tool known as Qualtrics. This software helps researchers construct survey instruments using self-identified parameters, capture data, and then perform quantitative statistical analysis. Researchers at the college use the software to conduct hospitality-relevant market research.
