Each year during LSP’s four week summer program incoming first-year students complete a group research project on a significant societal issue or challenge.
During the experience, students write a research proposal, discuss current research and approaches to deal with this challenge, provide recommendations (supported by scholarly evidence) on how to approach the challenge, evaluate counterarguments, and finally present their research through a poster. Due to the pandemic, this year’s program was virtual. However, students still completed their group research projects by creating digital posters. Thank you to the following instructors and staff for supporting our students with this project: Brian Cabral, Becky Tsang, Dr. Jennifer Schwartz-Poehlmann, Dr. Charlie Cox, Dr. Dana Paquin, Dr. Jennifer Johnson, Dr. Meg Formato , Dr. Lisa Swan, Dr. Mutallip Anwar, Dr. Tara Diener, Dr. Jae Chung, Dr. Joe Garner, Dr. Jill Wentzell, and Dr. Jenae Cohn. Please see the gallery below of outstanding work from the Leland Scholars ninth cohort!
