In April, 20 Lafayette students presented research at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. NCUR is a competitive program: Students are selected if their research demonstrates a unique contribution to their field of study. The experience enables students to present to peers and faculty from institutions across the nation; the environment promotes academic enrichment and professional development.

We invited a few students and their faculty advisors to share details about their research. Scroll down further for a complete list of all the research projects.
