The University of South Dakota recently named 13 students who will conduct scholarly research this summer through the U. Discover program, a Council for Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship (CURCS) and Center for Academic and Global Engagment initiative.
The U. Discover program allows students who
have advanced through a competitive application and interview process to
partner with faculty members on a research project of their own. The 13 students will meet bi-weekly to present on topics related to their
research and scholarship.
“I have been involved with the U. discover
reviews and student interviews for the last three years, and I have been amazed
at the quality of the students and projects,” CURCS Chair-Elect and
Committee Chair Peter Kindle said. “Nothing has given me more pride in being a part
of the Coyote family.”
Some of this year’s research topics include
the cognitive flexibility of mindfulness and rumination and a linguistic
ethnography of Pantelleria, a Mediterranean island.
