At Saint Joseph's, learning doesn't stop when the final class of the semester is concluded. Each summer, dozens of students stay on campus to engage in faculty-mentored research or creative projects in departments across the University. The 11-week program runs from May until August and provides students with a stipend, on-campus housing and opportunities to participate in social and educational programs.
During the program, students work with their faculty mentor to develop a written description of their research, which is published by the University. They continue to work throughout the year and present their findings at the Celebration of Student Achievement the following spring. Research topics range from local and national issues in the sciences, business, education and history to extended analysis of literature and fine arts.
