Whether it’s for Student Symposium, International Symposium, or something else, many students conduct extensive research during their time at Beloit.
Nathaniel Omans’14, from La Crosse, Wis., started envisioning a student-run effort that would permanently capture that scholarship.
Under the guidance of Charles Westerberg’94, who directs the college’s Liberal Arts in Practice Center, Omans decided to establish the multidisciplinary Beloit Undergraduate Research Journal to preserve and highlight student work. Entirely run by student editors, the journal will be published online (http://burj.beloit.edu/) and appear in print annually.
After spending the fall selecting the editorial board and sending out a call for submissions in December, Omans—who serves as editor-in-chief—and his team will compile and edit the submissions in preparation for the first issue’s release in April.
The Beloit Undergraduate Research Journal is funded in part by the Center for Entrepreneurship in Liberal Education at Beloit, known as CELEB.
