Gordon provides unique opportunities for students to work one on one with faculty on innovative research projects. From these mentoring collaborations, students at Gordon have produced papers in peer-reviewed journals, research presentations, art installations, and film features.
Undergraduate Research Symposium Day: Each year in May the Gordon community gathers in the Ken Olsen Science Center for the annual Undergraduate Research Symosium. It is the largest gathering of student researchers at Gordon.
The Undergraduate Research Council (URC), an organization supported by the Gordon College Student Association (GCSA), sponsors students to present and attend key conferences in their disciplines. The support is designed to help offset the costs of travel, registration and lodging, and to promote student participation in broader scholarly conversations in their discipline.
