Grant Funds Gender Gap Research
Professor Alessandra Cassar supports student research thanks to a grant from the Charles Koch Foundation.
The College of Arts and Sciences promotes research as a humanizing, social activity, rather than a competitive exercise, to expand learning beyond the classroom.
Our student-to-faculty ratio of 15-to-1 forges close, collaborative relationships between faculty and students. In contrast to larger colleges, we give undergraduates the chance to do graduate-level research directly with their professors. The results are in-depth inquiry and creative expression in areas ranging from computational neuroscience and ecofeminist ethics to acculturation’s impact on the health of Asian American immigrants.
