Central to the mission of the Learning Research Institute is contributing to the research environment at CSUSB. We do this through conducting and sponsoring a substantial body of research across a variety of domains. We actively involve students (both at the undergraduate and graduate level) throughout the research process, as it is our aim to contribute to the community not only through the research we conduct, but also through the growth and development of CSUSB student researchers. Indeed, nearly all of the work conducted through the LRI is a collaboration of student and faculty researchers.
