Student Research

The Undergraduate Research Program IUSM-NW exists to help undergraduates participate in research and scholarly activities, in collaboration with Center faculty. A student and his or her faculty sponsor work together on a project of mutual interest. The mentoring relationship developed through the research and scholarly process is beneficial to the student and to the faculty member. Students have the opportunity to participate in a research project from beginning to end, to go beyond classroom experience and to investigate an idea in great depth. Faculty have the enjoyment of being able to move beyond the classroom examples with students who are actively engaged in the discovery process.

For additional information on research at IUSM-NW, please contact Ms. Dawn Ilgenfritz at 219-980-6550
