Student Research


To complete their experiential-learning (EL) requirement, SASAH students give public presentations and submit final reports on their experiences. The presentations (replicated using VoiceThread), reports, and in some cases, related research papers are published on SASAH’s Scholarship@Western page.

Click here to join people from all over the world in watching the presentations and reading the reports on the diverse EL opportunities SASAH’s students have undertaken.


The Western Undergraduate Summer Research Internships (USRI) program provides undergraduate students with engaged research experiences and opportunities to learn new research methods and techniques alongside faculty mentors and develop skills in preparation for future careers.

SASAH students have been well represented in the USRI program since it began in 2020. Click on the links below to access their research.
