It’s often said when it comes to learning, people remember things they’ve done better than things they’ve heard or read.

Perhaps that’s one reason hands-on research is important in a university environment.

Central Michigan University was one of only eight doctoral universities in the country to advance from a rating of “limited research activity” to “higher research activity” in the most recent Carnegie Classification.

CMU is among only seven-percent of the nation’s colleges and universities with the designation.

Our Amy Robinson spoke with CMU President Dr. George Ross about the important Carnegie Designation.
