What's happening in student research
The Dale Bumpers College of Agriculture and Life Sciences shares faculty with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, who some of whom help guide student research. Check out Discovery magazine for the latest in student work.
Discovery is an avenue for Bumpers College to highlight and publish original research and independent creative projects conducted by undergraduate Bumpers students in cooperation with a faculty mentor, or in other words Discovery is mainly an avenue to publish the Honors and research projects of students (or student teams) who undertake original, creative, and innovative independent research.
