Research is integral to the Honors College experience. Incoming students conduct interdisciplinary research on global issues in their first-year mission course, the Forum, and continue up through specialized, faculty-supervised Capstone projects in all schools and departments in their senior years. The Honors College works closely with the Aresty Research Center, supporting structured programs for faculty and students to collaborate on advanced investigations and experiments with financial and academic credit support. Every Fall, HC students are invited to Research Coffee Chats to network with professors, post-docs, and doctoral students and connect for opportunities. Upperclassmen are mentored by HC Graduate Mentor Fellows regarding presentation practices for Capstone projects.
