Undergraduate Research and Creative Works
at Viterbo University
We hope the resources and information presented here are helpful to you in your quest to learn more about the vibrant undergraduate scholarly culture at Viterbo. The goals of Viterbo University's undergraduate research initiatives are to:
- provide students with the resources and opportunities to engage in meaningful faculty-student collaborative research and creative work;
- supply infrastructure and support to faculty who mentor undergraduate research and creative work;
- facilitate students’ presentation of their scholarship to faculty, peers, and community members; and
- foster the growth of students as inquisitive scholars, engaged citizens, and ethical leaders.
Some of the ways we accomplish these goals are through our three university-wide undergraduate research initiatives (more information about each event can be accessed by clicking on the red event title).
Scholars' Days is a university-wide celebration of Viterbo student achievement across academic disciplines. Please check back in January 2016 for information about Scholars' Days 2016.
Seven Rivers Undergraduate Research Symposium is a premier regional conference on undergraduate research and creative inquiry. Next year's symposium will take place on Friday, November 4, 2016 - mark your calendars!
