Each student in the Knowledge Integration Senior Research Project (two-term course, INTEG 420 A & B) works on a short research project under the dual direction of a member of the Department of Knowledge Integration and an advisor from a discipline related to the topic. The results of this project will be presented in thesis form, and will be critically examined by members of this and, where pertinent, other departments.

The students will present summaries of their projects on April 9. Details about this online event at: Knowledge Integration Symposium 2021.

Conference-style papers: link will be added here in April
