Conducting research under the direction of a faculty member is a rewarding experience and a valuable component of undergraduate education. Many students receive credit for research as part of an independent study course, and students may be eligible to apply for Undergraduate Research Stipends.
Students interested in exploring research opportunities should talk to a faculty member in their area of interest.
2021 Research and Student Engagement Expo
Students will create research posters and combine them with a short video presentation in an Adobe Spark page. Support on how to do this will be provided in the Canvas group for the Research Expo.
Register for the Research and Student Engagement Expo by February 12. All registered students are added to the Expo Canvas group.
