    Collaborative Research

    The curriculum at Hamline University encourages students to "own" their education, to develop over the course of their studies an awareness of – and control over – the production of scholarship. By the time students graduate, they will not merely have studied in the area of their major – for instance Biology, English, Psychology, or Theatre – but they will become practicing professionals in their field – as Biologists, Literary Critics, Clinical Psychologists, or Actors. The academic focus of the Collaborative Research Program is integration into the practices of student’s respective, sometimes cross-disciplinary and often intersecting, fields of study. 

    Student research can take a variety of forms, ranging from advanced projects assigned by faculty in regularly taught courses, independent studies and creative projects, honors theses, study abroad, and student-faculty collaborative research. The Collaborative Research program funds many opportunities for conducting and disseminating student research, including underwriting research costs, or supporting attendance at relevant workshops or seminars.

    Hamline Interdisciplinary Student Research Symposium

    The symposium is going virtual this year! All members of the Hamline community are welcome to visit and engage with the collaborative research many of our students have worked on during the last year.

    The event will be open from September 22 until September 28 here: https://symposium.foragerone.com/hamline

    On September 24, from 11:30 until 12:30, student presenters will be present in the Google Meet Rooms so that visitors can chat, ask questions, and further engage with the presenters. The links to the Google Meet Rooms and specific times will be listed in the comments in each of the presenter's space on the Symposium website.

    Everyone will be able to see students' submission materials, such as abstracts, posters, and short videos. To as presenters questions and/or comment in the Discussion Forums, the visitors should create an account (with their Hamline emails).

    Faculty, please consider offering extra credit to your students for attending. Students, come see and engage with the work of your peers and get inspired for the research you could pursue. Staff, come celebrate the student research your support makes possible.
