Undergraduate Research Department Index

Undergraduate research and creative activities at Eastern Connecticut State University provide opportunities for students to work closely with faculty mentors on research or creative work. Projects are aligned with the mentor’s expertise and designed to expose students to professional activities within a chosen field. Specific activities vary with each experience and by discipline.

The following pages provide examples of current projects as well as projects that are completed which have been presented or published.  Students can also locate funding sources for their work and travel to present their completed projects. For students who have already completed a project, national undergraduate conferences for presentation or exhibition and undergraduate journals for publication are listed below.
