Abilene to emulate Trinity

The Optimist, a publication of the Abilene Christian University, published an article recently about plans for a spring undergraduate research festival at ACU.  Honors College Dean Chris Willerton cited Trinity as a model for ACU in their efforts to strengthen undergraduate research.

While ACU may not have the research capabilities of larger, established research institutions like Texas A&M or Rice University, it may soon rival other liberal arts colleges, like Trinity University, which Willerton describes as a “liberal arts powerhouse” with “really impressive research.”  Eventually, Willerton said he hopes undergraduate research will become a natural part of the ACU experience.
