Summer Research Academy
June 12- July 20, 2017
We believe that research is an essential opportunity that should be open to everyone, not just scholars or graduate students. Research is more than gathering data, analyzing trends or formulating new ideas; it is an experience! By taking ownership of your own project, we invite you to spend the summer molding your own experience.
