ACRoSS: Research Seminar Series

Allegheny College Research Seminar Series (ACRoSS)

ACRoSS is an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of summer research projects developed by students and faculty at Allegheny College. We have held the ACRoSS meetings since the summer of 2008. Students who participate in summer research on campus (through the Provost/URSCA sponsored research program, the Gateway Network, or faculty grants), along with faculty researchers and community members, meet on a weekly basis and students present short overviews of their specific summer research projects (e.g., proposed experiments, data, anticipated results) to an audience of students, faculty, and administrators. Meetings are generally held on Tuesdays from Noon until 1:30 PM in the Tippie Alumni Center’s Tillotson room. Lunch is provided courtesy of funds furnished by the Provost of the College and URSCA office.

For Summer 2022, ACRoSS will run from early-June until mid-August. Students interested in participating in summer research should discuss this possibility with a faculty research mentor. The student application for the collaborative Student-Faculty Research program can be found here (due by 5:00 PM on 13 April 2022). The faculty mentor evaluation form can be found here (due by 5:00 PM on 13 April 2022).

Students conducting summer research and participating in ACRoSS wishing to live on campus during the summer should visit this MyAllegheny post to sign up for and find more information about summer room and board.

The schedule of events for 2022 will be posted in the toolbar on the right.
