ARC provides undergraduate and graduate students with a scholarly venue to present their original research to peers and professors. Students work closely with faculty mentors to develop research questions in areas of special interest and create a plan of action to answer those questions.

This year’s conference topics were varied and often spanned multiple disciplines. Projects included how the United States could learn from Switzerland’s policies on illicit drugs, the driving forces behind the development of Adolf Hitler, and how misogynistic lyrics in modern music may be negatively shaping our culture.
