Students participate in UMW’s first ever Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Summer Institute.

Mentored undergraduate research has long been a staple of the summer for UMW students in science and mathematical fields. Now arts, humanities and social sciences students are reaping the benefits as well.

The first Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Summer Institute (AHSSSI) concluded yesterday with a symposium during which five teams presented the results of their monthlong research projects. The event, beginning at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, in the Digital Auditorium of the Hurley Convergence Center, is open to the public.
