Investigating Solutions through Research

Faculty and students seeking answers together. 

Independent research represents one of the highest achievements of undergraduate student learning. Completing serious, high-quality research requires critical thinking, analysis and creativity, and exposes students to detailed involvement in their field.

We give students the opportunity to conduct research alongside scholars, which takes undergraduates beyond traditional learning methods and into the realm of new discovery.
