They participate in undergraduate research where they are trained to be fair, honest and consistent in their education and research practices.
Students perform community service and act as mentors, truly getting the most out of their college experiences as they prepare to pursue terminal degrees in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines.
They also join a diverse community of learners who understand that mentoring, education, and research can be the foundation for undergraduate and graduate achievement.
LSU is proud to present this prestigious award as a LA-STEM Research Scholar to Jared Able in pursuit of a degree in Mathematics.
