Kristina Qualben was one of 60 students who collaborated with faculty on a variety of research projects as part of Muhlenberg College's research community. Projects included studying air quality, violin acoustics, cell genetics, works from a famous Irish novelist, Islamic and Ecuadorian cultures, and more. Students are typically on campus for 8-10 weeks of full-time research and receive a stipend, housing and college credit. Funds are provided from a variety of sources including college grants and independent scholarships. The undergraduate research participants join in a weekly summer seminar series in which students discuss their work and an annual poster session allows students to present their work to the campus community at large. Students may also travel off-campus to present their scholarly work in their discipline at regional, national and international conferences, with travel funds provided by the school. Many students take the opportunity to continue their summer research during the academic year by registering for independent study credit or a research assistantship under the guidance of a faculty member. These programs provide hands-on experience with a faculty mentor to complement their classroom education with practical work experience.
