Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Laurier Brantford Academic, Creative and Engaged Research Showcase (ACERS)

In March 2018, Laurier Brantford will be holding its second annual Research Celebration Week, now called the Academic, Creative and Engaged Research Showcase (ACERS).

Past showcases have featured a 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.

Student researchers are encouraged to apply to the Creativity and Engagement Expo being featured at this year's showcase.

For more information, please contact Christina Han, Coordinator of Undergraduate Research.

Faculty of Liberal Arts Undergraduate Journal: Bridges

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.

To find out more about the journal, and how you can get involved, visit the Bridges website or email journal faculty advisor, Sue Ferguson or staff advisor, Karley Doucette.

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.
