Celebrating Student Research

Student research is an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate or graduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to their discipline.  Student research is an educational practice that has the ability to engage student interest and enthusiasm for an area of study and to help them launch promising careers.
