When we engage in college-level research, we join the conversation about a topic. Like any conversation, in academic scholarship there are lots of other "voices" in the discussion surrounding a topic-- professors, professionals, concerned citizens, government agencies, students, etc. These conversations around topics of study generate new ideas and questions that move research forward.
