Collaboration between ISU and SIUC

The Elena M. Sliepcevich Centre for Health Education Studies of Southern Illinois University Carbondale is pleased to collaborate with Illinois State University to provide undergraduate research opportunities. Establishment of a collaborative agreement between the Health Education units provides opportunities to mentor undergraduate School Health Education students in historical research through use of Centre primary resources housed at Morris Library's Special Collections Research Center. An undergraduate Professional Development Historical Research Award has been created to parallel the Centre graduate student Research Fellows Award. Dissemination of research (presentation at a national conference or publication in a peer-reviewed journal) by recipients will expand awareness of Elena M Sliepcevich Centre resources and opportunities.
