Follow the X-SIG blog to keep up with undergraduate research on our campus.
The Cross-Disciplinary Science Institute at Gettysburg College (X-SIG) was established to help our community of students be research ready, research active and research connected. The X-SIG oversees a set of initiatives designed to equip our students with the skills necessary for modern research, preparing them to integrate multiple disciplines in order to answer science’s most pressing questions. Specifically, the Cross Disciplinary Science Institute:
Kurt Andresen (Physics) is the X-SIG coordinator. X-SIG Board members are Véronique Delesalle (Biology), Luke Thompson (Chemistry), Josef Brandauer (fall semester; Health Sciences), Ricardo Conceicao (fall semester; Math), Kathy Berenson (spring semester; Psychology), Wendy Piniak (spring semester; Environmental Studies), and Kris Stuempfle (Dean of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computer Science).
Support for the X-SIG program is provided by:
The Science House is organized around the common intellectual interests of its residents and provides a common space for connecting ideas outside the classroom, and hosting visiting lecturers and researchers.
Fellowships to support Gettysburg students in summer research with faculty members in Division III (biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental studies, health sciences, math, physics, and psychology) are available by competitive application to the X-SIG Board.
