Spring 2016

The Spring 2016 edition of Montclair State’s award-winning Forward Thinking research newsletter highlights the University’s recent designation as a Research Doctoral Institution in the prestigious Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. Long a leader in graduate education in New Jersey, the new designation is a milestone that recognizes the University’s increased number of doctoral students in research fields and its ability to attract significant funding from federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation, NASA and the U.S. Department of Education.

In this issue you will also discover, among other research, how our faculty are measuring environmental change in the Arctic; supporting graduate education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education; exploring sustainable bioenergy solutions in the Midwestern and Southern United States; and participating in history-making research on deep space and gravitational waves, confirming Einstein’s theory of relativity.
