Research Excellence and Opportunity
Investigate, innovate and inspire
Across disciplines and campus, students and faculty alike are on the leading edge of research.
Our founder, Mary Lyon, was a chemist who encouraged Mount Holyoke’s earliest students to learn by getting out of the classroom and into the real world. Today, that inquisitive spirit is still in our DNA, and it’s why we are driven to make research possible for scholars of all levels and disciplines. Whether students are in the classroom, laboratory or out in the world, we provide opportunities for them to pursue their own research interests while supporting faculty with the resources to expand and deepen theirs.
