Our students have the opportunity to do original research at the undergraduate level, collaborating with faculty who are at the top of their fields.

Because Illinois Wesleyan is an entirely undergraduate institution, students are offered research and creative opportunities without competition from graduate students.

They develop close relationships with faculty who love to teach and engage students in their research and scholarly work.

Students also have the opportunity to apply for undergraduate research scholarships to support their work.

Many students showcase their scholarship and creativity in undergraduate journals and at the annual John Wesley Powell Research Conference.

Student and faculty work is archived online in the Digital Commons.

Students also take research projects into the surrounding community through the Action Research Center.
