Undergraduate Student Research

A major university boasting many Nobel Prize winners may seem the best place for research, but how often do you suppose such "stars" even speak to undergraduates? If you want to prepare yourself for professional careers or further study, you will find at La Salle faculty members who are actively investigating and publishing-and, even more important, eager to mentor undergraduates in research projects. At La Salle, students are engaged in personalized and professionally rewarding undergraduate research projects in the arts and social sciences, in business, in nursing, and in the physical sciences. Such work, intellectually valuable in itself, can lead to conference papers and publications, which provide distinctive credentials for job-hunting and for further professional study

In addition to the usual university research and laboratory facilities, La Salle offers a number of special resources for undergraduate research. Connelly Library has accessible Special Collections (some internationally or nationally significant) in such areas as Imaginative Representations of the Vietnam War, and the Imaginative Representations of the Holocaust, Charles Willson Peale, Bob Dylan, and Owen Wister and the Wister Family. The university's much-praised Art Museum provides many research opportunities, and one student recently won the university's $2000 Leo Prize for her research there. The new "ISBT" major (Integrating Science, Business, and Technology), one of two such programs in the country, will offer even more opportunities for student research, perhaps related to La Salle's recently-established E-Commerce Institute.
