Introductory Chapter

Early Research: A Strategy for Inclusion and Student Success

Desmond H. Murray, Sherine Obare, and James Hageman

Abstract

This introductory chapter will define ‘early research’, distinguish it from other forms of active learning, discuss its relationship to inclusion and student success, provide an overview of the book chapters and outline our vision and recommendations for the future of early research. This chapter will highlight current trends and opportunities in, examples of and resources for authentic ‘early research’ and feature its impact on participating students from the traditional historically underrepresented groups (HUGs) in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), as well as on the nontraditional demographic classification of age.
