We’re proud of the fact that over half of our students participate in student-faculty led research during their time at Northland. Undergraduate research provides our students with the opportunity to apply what they have learned in their courses and co-curricular activities to answer a question of interest or importance, develop a line of reasoning or a methodology, or investigate a passion more deeply. The process fosters creativity and exploration, and allows students to seek new understandings and find innovations and solutions. To learn more about the research process at Northland, learn about our Institutional Review Board.
Northland hosts an annual Honors Day Convocation and Poster Symposium. Unfortunately, in light of Governor Evers Stay-At-Home order, the 2019 event has been cancelled. While we were looking forward to publicly recognizing our students’ hard work and impressive accomplishments, it is more important for us all to be safe and stay healthy. In lieu of the Convocation, we are pleased to announce the 2020 award recipients. There may be less fanfare, but the pride we feel for each recipient is steadfast. We virtually clap our hands and offer our sincere and enthusiastic ‘Congratulations!’
