collaborative research

as a four-year institution dedicated to undergraduates, lycoming faculty place a heavy emphasis on education, and their research agendas are designed to cultivate student collaboration and academic discovery. this principle is core to our mission.

students participate in semester-based research labs, as well as funded summer research collaborations across a spectrum of academic disciplines. the skills developed through these collaborations position lycoming students to be successful in nationally-competitive summer research residencies.

among the many research residency successes, recent lycoming students have successfully won research positions at:

  • harvard smithsonian center for astrophysics
