RCGV faculty are committed to training and mentoring the next generation. We provide numerous and varied educational and employment opportunities to undergraduates, graduate students, law students, and new investigators—including comprehensive training in the design, implementation and evaluation of cutting-edge research and programs. Students will learn state-of-the-art methodologies, current theory, and strategies for successfully implementing research into practice.

The vast majority of our projects involve students, in a variety of capacities (study conceptualization, data collection, data management and analysis, writing, publishing, and presenting).

Support of students has included presenting research at conferences together, co-authoring publications, introducing students to key leaders in the field, and much more.
