 The Council for Resource Development (CRD) invites members of its community to share their
 research and scholarly perspectives about issues facing development in community colleges.

 Although research in this field remains nascent, CRD believes that practice must increasingly be
 informed by research and data whenever possible, and that much research holds untapped potential for
 assisting practitioners. It is CRD's intent to encourage more research in the field and to showcase
 applicable findings that hold promise for the membership.

The Council for Resource Development (CRD) is the only professional organization concerned exclusively with fundraising
