In March 2017, Laurier Brantford held its inaugural Research Celebration Week. It featured the Criminology Conference, Human Rights and Human Diversity Conference, Research Apprenticeship Poster Presentations and the White Ribbon Workshop. The events showcased undergraduate student research and provided learning experiences for the general public and the Laurier community.
The 2018 Undergraduate Research Celebration Week will be held in early March. For more information, please contact Christina Han, Coordinator of Undergraduate Research.
Bridges: An Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Connections is an online, free access journal that publishes top quality essays and reviews by Laurier undergraduate students. With around 1,300 downloads over the past year, and nearly 4,000 downloads overall, Bridges offers students a chance to share their work across Canada and around the world. It also offers them an opportunity to gain valuable academic publishing experience.
Students can get involved as writers, peer-reviewers and/or editors of the journal. Writers submit essays, research papers or book reviews through the journal's website at any time throughout the year. Essays and research papers are then sent (anonymously) to a team of student reviewers who, following the typical academic peer-reviewed process, recommend that the student's work be published without revision, revised and then published or rejected. A team of student editors oversee the entire process and take responsibility for the final editing and publication of all material.
The Faculty of Liberal Arts is recruiting research ambassadors who will help promote undergraduate research initiatives on campus. Working under the supervision of the coordinator of undergraduate research, the research ambassadors will give presentations and facilitate workshops on undergraduate research, as well as assist in the planning and organization of Research Celebration Week and various undergraduate student conferences. Participation as a research ambassador will be listed on the student's co-curricular record.
We are currently recruiting student research ambassadors to help plan and organize events for 2017/18.
Please contact Christina Han for more information.
