Student Research

Students have the opportunity to perform independent or collaborative research and pursue Honors Projects. The  John Wesley Powell Student Research Conference, held in April each year, provides a public forum where students may present their research projects.

Scholarships are available  to support student research, such as the Eckley Summer Scholars and Artists Endowment.
