Learning at Wabash: A Collaborative Process
Our strong liberal arts ethos leads us not only to acquire knowledge, but to participate actively in the creation and discovery of new ideas.
Motivated students at Wabash College earn opportunities to work side by side with their professors on research and creative projects. While large research universities might appear to provide the best exposure to research, at Wabash, undergraduates are the priority and students from every department across campus are regularly involved with faculty on innovative projects.
From summer internships and independent study, to larger research groups, Wabash faculty value the opportunity to mentor students and help them pursue opportunities to build upon and then move beyond the classroom. Funding for student projects is available through a grants program and through a variety of departmental and divisional resources.
Student-faculty collaborative research and creative work occurs in virtually every academic department across the College, and is showcased every January when Wabash hosts a campus-wide research conference where dozens of students present their work to the entire campus community.
