Summer Research

TeamBILD (Big Issues and Leading-edge Discovery) 

This summer interdisciplinary undergraduate research program has been labeled CURCA’s most prestigious program.  TeamBILD students will work in teams of three, one from each School, to examine “big” issue topics. Each team will be supported by faculty mentors from each of the three Schools.  The interdisciplinary nature of the program will encourage students to synthesize knowledge from different content areas to form new insights.  At the conclusion of the summer experience, the teams will present a concrete plan for putting their research into action to achieve results.  Full details of the program are found on the CURCA website (www.siena.edu/curca).

Summer Scholars Program 

The Siena Summer Scholars Program promotes inquiry and creativity by supporting scholarly activity in which faculty members and students collaborate during the summer. Student participation in scholarly activities fosters exploration and discovery by providing opportunities to design and carry out original research including evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of information or participation in a creative activity.
