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, now in its fourth year, 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 2014-2015 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 fourth 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 2015 Summer program includes 19 student-faculty pairs with many diverse topics. Research projects range from Russian language studies (Analyzing the Strategies used to Translate Daniil Kharms’ Poetry) to psychology (Use of Text Messaging to Promote or Inhibit Relationship Satisfaction) to information technology (Evaluating Mobile Computing Geographic Maps for the Daily Living of People with Disabilities). There are also studies on biology (Cloning, Expression, and Purification of the Cellular TORC2 Protein), economics (The Greening of China:  A Runner Up or a Laggard?), and even a study on nursing students (A Mind Body Intervention for Stress Reduction in Freshman Nursing Students).
