April 14-18 is Undergraduate Research Week at UT, hosted by the Senate of College Councils and the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies. Colleges and organizations across campus, including the College of Liberal Arts, coordinate events throughout the week to showcase the work of undergraduate researchers.
On April 15, a group of 11 outstanding liberal arts researchers presented their research at the Liberal Arts Undergraduate Research Reception, hosted by Dean Randy Diehl. A committee selected the top research posters from participants of the Honors Day Poster Presentation on April 12 and asked them to present to college directors, chairs, deans and faculty at the reception.
Four of those presenters answered questions about their research motivation, process and experiences. Read their answers on Life & Letters.
