Undergraduates can do scholarly research. It happens all the time at Saint Rose. Our students propose their own projects, apply their coursework to topics that interest them, frame questions, test hypotheses, and even present their findings at academic conferences. Groups of students build interpersonal skills by collaborating on research. Faculty members help student researchers shape and refine their work while serving as mentors, role models, and—in some cases—co-researchers.
Meanwhile, Saint Rose gives these researchers many opportunities to excel. We support student travel to conferences to present research, award summer research grants to undergraduates, publish an annual Undergraduate Research Journal, and hold an all-College undergraduate research symposium each spring.
