The ICR list of scholarly publications comes from a variety of sources. First, the ICR program directors follow their research interests and publish articles relevant to ICR’s focus. Second, ICR also offers research funds in the form of summer research grants to a number of faculty and doctoral students. As a result of their time, effort and hard work, some have their research published. Finally, ICR holds a number of events and in some cases publications are produced as a result.
