Summer Research Program
Research Projects & Contacts


Departmental research contacts are available to help students identify faculty who may potentially serve as summer research advisors.

Faculty members who served as advisors to recent student summer research projects may also have other projects in the future. Here is a list of recent student summer research projects, sorted alphabetically by department and advisor.

Finally, faculty members may also advertise specific projects and those will be included in a list of potential projects as possible student research opportunities for the summer.
