Research and Mentoring

Students walk down a pathway to classThe Honors College values undergraduate research as an important form of experiential learning and encourages faculty to offer opportunities to engage students in undergraduate research in the arts, humanities, social and natural sciences.

Honors faculty mentors who engage in research with our students report their experiences as especially rewarding. Through the Honors Summer Undergraduate Research Program, for example, faculty may be paired with an exceptional Honors student dedicated to assisting with the instructor’s research. Faculty mentors are frequently so impressed with the students’ work that they often continue working with these highly-motivated students long after the summer program has ended.
