The Charles Center has become a crossroads linking students with opportunities to perform in-depth, hands-on research of all kinds.
Each year the Center sponsors the annual Summer Research Showcase, which features poster sessions and oral presentations displaying the summer research of students who have been funded by the Charles Center. This event is open to the public and will take place each fall.
The Center also oversees and facilitates the Departmental Honors program for all of Arts & Sciences. All Honors students complete a two-semester long original research project that culminates in a written thesis and oral examination.
