Research opportunities and practice-based learning projects offer students additional academic experiences to enhance their education.

Undergraduate Research

Virtually every CASL program offers students the opportunity to engage in independent study or research under the direction of a faculty member. Selected CASL students have the opportunity to present their research projects for the entire UM-Dearborn campus to enjoy at the Undergraduate Research and Project-based Learning Showcase. 

Meeting of Minds

Since its inception in 1993, the annual Meeting of Minds Undergraduate Conference (MOM) has provided a forum for the publication and dissemination of undergraduate student research. As a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan-FlintUniversity of Michigan-Dearborn, and Oakland University, MOM showcases the results of student-faculty collaboration in research and creative activities from across all academic disciplines. 

Virtual Undergraduate Research Presentations

CASL students' virtual research presentations - work done through classwork, lab assignments, or an independent study.  Because students did not have the opportunity to present their work in class or at conferences during spring and summer 2020, the college has set up this site for viewing their work remotely.

Geographic Information System (GIS) Resources and Events

Resources for faculty and students who are looking to expand their understanding and use of GIS tools and analysis in classes, research, and administrative applications, both within CASL and across the campus.  You will also find information regarding the annual event, GIS Day.
