Research at Huron

Huron is committed to providing our students and faculty with ample research opportunities because we believe supporting the creation of new knowledge is the way to move our world forward. Through events, collaborative initiatives and the provision of financial support, our university aims to demonstrate the value of Liberal Arts research in addressing social issues.

Huron students will have unique opportunities to conduct research in close partnership with their professors. This will help them build an impressive portfolio, positioning them for success in post-graduate studies and the vocation of their choice.
