The Center for Excellence in Scholarship & Research

The goal of the Center for Excellence in Scholarship and Research (CESR) is to help advance the careers of faculty, staff and graduate students at Minnesota State University, Mankato. We provide a forum where faculty can share ideas and collaborate with a community of scholars. We also assist in finding academic journals and editing for publication.



We assist faculty, staff and graduate students in a number of ways:

  • Research Idea Development
  • Research Design and Consultations
  • Data Analysis
  • Manuscript Editing
  • Authorship Issues
  • Responding to Reviewers
  • Academic Journal Searches


Our workshops are designed to help faculty and staff develop and refine skills critical to the research process, from writing and editing to data collection and online surveys.  We also have online Workshops and Classes for faculty and graduate students with schedules too restricting for traditional workshops.
