    Spotlight on Academics

    Undergraduate Research

    Work one on one with your professor. Find out what it means to be a scholar in your discipline — in the sciences, humanities or the arts. Answer a question that really means something to you. Here, the only thing that limits undergraduate research opportunities is your imagination. So be bold. Discover something new. Contribute to the body of knowledge. Then share your findings.
