Reception to follow!
Through the awarding of a multi-year, $200,000 grant by the W.M. Keck Foundation, select undergraduate students were chosen to participate in the inaugural URSCI (Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Inquiry) Summer Institute. With a strong focus on interdisciplinary collaboration, students worked to formulate their own research projects based around the theme of "Spaces and Places".
