The Dr. James Girard Summer Undergraduate Research Program

A research experience for undergraduate students.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Program is a collaborative experience for Lewis University students from multiple disciplines to engage in undergraduate research over the summer. This 10-week program brings students from various disciplines together weekly to discuss topics such as research ethics, data analysis methods, scientific writing, resume building, etc. in addition to their specific discipline-related research. Working one-on-one with a faculty mentor, the program funds these students for the summer and offers an experiential learning environment that accelerates their research careers, with many students presenting their outcomes at conferences and/or via publications. The program concludes with a research symposium, at which participants present to the community accomplishments from their summer research.
