Begin Your Research
Undergraduate Research can begin in one of two ways:
Student initiated research with faculty supervision.
Faculty initiated research by involving the student as an individual or member of a team of undergraduate researchers.

Mentoring a student varies depending on the discipline they are studying. Arts and Humanities disciplines may require only guidance as the student works on their own individual project. While in the Mathematics and Science department, the involvement will be deeper due to the nature of the scientific experimental process.
In any of the areas, undergraduate research may include participation of the student in an ongoing faculty project. Publication of materials from these projects should include the student's name along with the faculty mentor, except in the case of individual creative work.
The Institutional Review Board Committee (IRB) at Keystone College is responsible for protecting the rights of human subjects who participate in research conducted by faculty, students, professional and administrative staff.
The Committee is charged with assuring that people engaging in research as representatives of Keystone College and people who wish to use members of the campus community as human subjects honor the ethical principles set forth by the Belmont Report (1978).
