The WKU Student Research Council encourages student involvement in scholarly activities and coordinates annual REACH activities, including the WKU Student Research Conference. As a result of the WKU Student Research Council's efforts, Western Kentucky University will be widely recognized as a premiere institution for student involvement in scholarly activities.

Scholarly activity is original and creative work that is shared with colleagues and the general public. Research is a form of scholarly activity that involves the discovery of new knowledge. Other forms of scholarship include the development of new technologies, methods, materials, or uses; the integration of knowledge that leads to new understanding; and artistry that creates new insights and interpretations (Weiser 1996). Students can significantly enrich their academic experiences at WKU by engaging in scholarly activity.

The WKU Student Research Council promotes scholarly activities and professional development of graduate, undergraduate, and Gatton Academy students in all disciplines. To this end, the Council has four primary responsibilities.

  • Encourage student involvement in scholarly activities
  • Provide students with resources and information for scholarly engagement
  • Encourage faculty mentoring of students
  • Organize the annual WKU Student Research Conference

The success of the WKU Student Research Council depends upon a university-wide commitment to participation and collaboration among administration, faculty-staff, and students.
