It Starts With a Question
The faculty and students in Arts and Sciences ask some intriguing questions, which lead to some powerful research:
- History professor Waitman Beorn published a book of his research into the perspectives of German soldiers who carried out the extermination of 800,000 Jews during the Holocaust.
- Arts and Sciences students from Biology, Office of Latin/Latino American Studies (OLLAS), Foreign Languages and Literature collaborated and traveled to Lima, Peru to research the water crisis there.
The Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory conducts research on the impacts of agrichemicals on fish. We are always looking for interested students to work with us to explore the relationships between land use, chemical contamination of surface waters, and the biological impacts of those chemicals. For more information, view our research website: UNO Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory and contact Dr. Kolok.
- Undergraduates Lucas Harrison and Racine Rangel won 1st and 3rd place in competition with master's and doctoral students at the Nebraska Water Center Fall Conference at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Research not only answers our questions, but it also adds knowledge to the disciplines we care about, benefits communities, and can help solve global issues.
There are opportunities for our students to apply for grants to fund the research they care about, so they can leave a lasting impact on the world. If you're interested in doing your own research or partnering with a faculty member to assist with their resarch, ask your academic adviser for more information.
