Research & Creative Activity

The Lumpkin College of Business and Applied Sciences offers a wide variety of opportunities for students to expand their academic experience and dig deeper into their discipline through collaborative research and creative activities with the guidance of a faculty mentor. Participating in research-related projects will:

  • Enhance your understanding and knowledge of your academic field
  • Take your learning outside of the classroom
  • Clarify post-graduate and career options
  • Develop skills in communication, critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork and time management
  • Earn academic credit, scholarships, stipends and/or awards
  • Strengthen your resume through presentations and publications of your projects

Our students are currently working on numerous research and creative projects. See what students have been up to in 2014-2015!
