Student and Faculty Research

Students can expand their horizons through research, whether in a lab, the research spot of your choice or Doane's 50-acre Aldrich Prairie Research Site.  Senior research projects also provide experience before employment or grad school.

Summer Research Programs

Stipends are provided for students to work with faculty to conduct scholarly or creative research—from studying waterways to writing an original play.
