Student Engagement & Enrichment
Activities planned under Student Engagement & Enrichment (SEE) will enrich student learning and expand our existing undergraduate research endeavors. For example, a supplemental seminar series will be run in conjunction with departmental colloquia so that students will be exposed to a wide range of career role models. In addition, we plan to support the development of innovative courses that merge teaching & research, which will allow both science majors and non-majors the opportunity to take part in authentic research experiences.
At WSSU, extra- and co-curricular research opportunities are available during the academic year and/or over the summer for eligible students. Scholarly research pursuits supplement and apply knowledge acquired from STEM courses, enhance student laboratory bench skills and techniques, and help students to prepare for graduate and professional school.
