Undergraduate Research Definition
At Franklin College, undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative work (RSC) is defined by these student learning outcomes:
- Students will demonstrate the ability to organize a professional-grade proposal.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to do RSC that contains a substantive component that is original.
- Students, with the guidance of a faculty/staff mentor, will demonstrate the ability to employ standards of RSC consistent with the standards of the project’s discipline(s) as defined by the faculty of Franklin College.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to articulate what they have learned from the RSC experience in a public forum in a way that:
- reflects critical thought,
- clearly outlines the original research, scholarship, or creative work accomplished,
- summarizes any major findings and their relationships to the student’s expectation, and
- explains how the project will impact the student’s future work.
