About the IRC

The Interdisciplinary Research Collaborative (IRC) celebrated its fourteenth year in 2017! The IRC program is designed  to provide opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in a full-time mentored summer research experience, and we have supported research projects for over 100 Rose-Hulman students from nine academic disciplines. Each fall, we host an Undergraduate Research Symposium, attracting undergraduate researchers from across the region in addition to Rose-Hulman students. We acknowledge with gratitude the past support from the Edwards Lifesciences Fund, and the additional support from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. For the past several years, the IRC program has joined with the Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Research Program (RSURP) and the Reba Weaver Endowment to fund summer research.

Upcoming events: The Wabash Valley Local Section American Chemical Society Undergraduate Research Conference and 14th Annual IRC Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held on Friday, October 20, 2017. The deadline for abstract submissions is Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
