CIVS Students Win in Campus Research Days 2012


Some 177 Purdue University Calumet students presented 102 scholarly research projects in the university’s annual Student Research Days on March 29, 2012 and March 30, 2012.

Undergraduate student research is one of several engaged learning components of Purdue Calumet’s innovative, experiential learning initiative, required of all undergraduate students.
