The El Pomar Fellowship is a highly selective, two-year post-undergraduate leadership training program that develops today’s young professionals into tomorrow’s leaders.

Student Led Research Panel

The Honors College will be hosting a student-led research panel, where students engaged in research will present on their work and experiences. Students interested in undergraduate research are encouraged to come and learn how research is done, and how they can get past the difficulty of taking the first steps in getting research experience!

The presenters are:
Patrick Robichaud – Office of Undergraduate Research
Juliana Brutman – Studies with rats
