At the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), we believe that process is an important factor in creating cultural change. We thus approach transformational initiatives by using the same scholarly rigor that we expect of any researcher. This involves (1) reviewing the literature and prior work in the area, (2) identifying critical factors and variables, (3) collecting data associated with these critical factors, (4) using rigorous statistical analysis and modeling of the question and factors, (5) developing hypotheses to influence the critical factors, and (6) collecting data based on the changes and assessing the results.
