Undergraduate Research Club

The Honors program sponsors the Undergraduate Research Club to promote an environment of research on campus. The Freshman Apprenticeship opportunity and the Senior Research Project both provide valuable one-on-one opportunities for students to conduct research with a Saint Leo University Faculty member.

  • Research seminars, resources and lectures including
    • "Choosing a statistical test"
    • "Institutional Review Board (IRB) processes"

    • "Senior Research Showcase"
