Flagler Student Research
Barbara Blonder, Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Research
For the second year in a row, Flagler College students took home the Excellence in Undergraduate Research Award at an April psychology conference held at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. And while many may not equate research with a liberal arts college, it is becoming a common thing at Flagler College.
An Opportunity to Dive Deeper
From research on the eating habits of young adults, to research on the struggles of female sportscasters, to research on phytoplankton in California, students work closely with faculty members and colleagues to dive deeper into their field of study, publish papers, present at national conferences, exhibit nationally and internationally and, yes, win awards. Often, they are able to do so with the assistance of Flagler’s Internal Funding Awards, which can help with some material or travel expenses.
Begin your path to undergraduate research by learning about your professor’s research pursuits and talking to other students who may already be actively participating in undergraduate research. You can also find many of these research presentations in our online research journal at flaglerresearchjournal.com
Undergraduate Research Presentations - 2014
The Office of Undergraduate Research is excited to announce an exciting new partnership. ScholarBridge is a new tool to promote student and faculty involvement in academic research. ScholarBridge is an online network where professors can post their availability to mentor students. Student members can search the ScholarBridge database of professors and opportunities – at any point in their academic career - to find the right mentor and the research focus that they are most interested in actively pursuing. Start by going to www.scholarbridge.com and creating a free account.
