Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Program
For over 100 years, research has been a cornerstone of the Pace University educational experience and the growth of the institution over time. Pace houses a world-renowned and accomplished faculty who bring their wealth of knowledge and expertise to our students. The Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Program is intended to showcase not only the great research by our faculty, but also by our diverse undergraduate student body. The projects selected this year are from a wide range of academic fields and will be showcased at the end of the 2016-2017 academic year. Indeed we look forward to the results of this year’s research as they help us better understand the world around us.

About the Program
Now in its sixth year, the Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Program allows faculty and undergraduate students with similar interests to work together on a research project throughout the academic year. A small stipend is granted to each pair, and an end-of-year showcase on each campus recognizes all research initiatives through formal presentations and poster sessions. Two overall winning pairs are awarded funding towards national conference expenses.
This year's 2016-2017 program includes 20 student-faculty pairs with many diverse topics. Research projects range from Economic Studies (The Effect of Long-term Unemployment on Cognitive Abilty & Wages) to Performing Arts (Anxiety: An Epidemic) to Psychology (Technology and the Therapeutic Frame:Changing Boundaries on the Digital Frontier). There are also studies in biology (Regulation of hair-cell regeneration in the zebrafish lateral line), economics (Balancing Environmental Policy and Economic Growth and Development), and even a study on nursing students (A Mind Body Intervention for Stress Reduction in Freshman Nursing Students).
Applications for the Summer 2017 and Academic Year 2017-18 program are now closed. Applications for the 2018-2019 AY willl be avaialble in the Spring of 2018.
