Student Research

Deb Connolly, Chair

We are very proud of the opportunities our undergraduate students have to engage with faculty and graduate students on cutting-edge research. Our students work in research labs assisting with existing research projects and even initiating their own studies. They are mentored through the process all the way to presentation at national and international conferences. Here are just a few examples. Congratulations to all of our undergraduate scholars whose research has been presented around the world!
