The Humanities Research Lab in Sierra Hall 194 is a space for students and faculty to collaborate on research that makes a contribution to scholarship in the Humanities. Its mission is especially to engage undergraduate students in research activities beyond the work they do for class assignments. The Lab is outfitted with 20 Windows laptops and 5 Macbook Pros, projection equipment, and movable furniture and whiteboards so that the space can be adapted to a wide variety of uses.
In Spring 2016 the Lab was piloted by four faculty-led research projects. Since then, the number of faculty-led student research groups has continued to grow.
