Frequently Asked Questions

What is a keystone project?

The keystone project is a substantial example of research, creation, or invention in a student’s chosen field. The form of the keystone project will vary but should be appropriate to the discipline at hand. For example, students of international relations might write a policy paper; biomedical engineers might create a device; stage designers might create a set for a specific play. All Kilachand Honors College seniors will work on their project with a major advisor in their discipline while continuing to develop and communicate their work with Kilachand Honors College peers. Kilachand Honors College seniors will plan a conference or series of workshops in which they present their keystone projects to students and faculty before graduation.
