Undergraduate Research



Regardless of your course of study, undergraduate research is an integral part of the Albion experience. So much so that we established the Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (FURSCA).

FURSCA is the backbone of independent study, supporting creativity and original scholarship across all disciplines. Each spring, the Elkin R. Isaac Student Research Symposium celebrates student research and projects.

Independent research is also possible off-campus, through programs at the Oak Ridge (Tenn.) National Laboratory and the Newberry Library in Chicago, as well as at many other locations here in the U.S. and abroad.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Beginning April 17, M-99 (Superior Street) in downtown Albion will be closed from Michigan Avenue to Ash Street for significant upgrades. Please visit our Maps, Directions, and Parking page or the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) website for more information.
