Contributions to e-Research: A Journal of Undergraduate Work may be made directly, or through faculty recommendation. Scholarly and other work published in e-Research: A Journal of Undergraduate Work underwent review for substance and currency through faculty screening, with a subsequent editorial staff review for quality, style, and fit.

Scholars Week is an annual celebration of undergraduate research and creative activities at WWU, was created by a unanimous resolution of the Faculty Senate in November 1999. What was originally envisioned as "Scholars Day" quickly became Scholars Week in order to accommodate a diverse series of events highlighting the scholarship and creativity of Western undergraduate students.

Generously supported by Western's President, Provost, The Western Foundation and many of the Colleges, Scholars Week has grown from the inaugural celebration in May 2000 that involved 100 students in 11 events to the very successful Scholars Week 2007 which involved more than 250 undergraduate students participating in over 50 different sessions from virtually every academic area of the university. Scholars Week 2005 marked the first "University Scholars Poster Session and Reception" which had participants from 13 departments and programs. The "University Scholars Poster Session and Reception" has grown and become more popular in the last few years.

From art to engineering technology, students and faculty are working closely together at WWU to explore the boundaries of knowledge. Scholars Week has become a highlight of the academic year, celebrating the contributions of undergraduate.students to enriching the intellectual environment of Western, and society in general.

WWU Honors Program Senior Projects
Western Washington University (WWU Graduate and Undergraduate Scholarship)
Open to Western Washington University Undergraduates.

An Honors Senior Project is required for graduation through the WWU Honors Program. The Senior Project serves as a “capstone” experience, synthesizing what students have done in their entire education, including but not limited to their work in the major and in Honors.

The term, Senior Project, is vague, and for a reason. The term “Senior Thesis” is easily available, but it is one the WWU Honors Program deliberately has avoided. While the project must be “product oriented,” i.e., there must be something tangible at the end of the process, it may be a long paper, that is a thesis, but it may also take several other forms, e.g., a recital, a painting, an album, a bound book, all of which have been quite successful senior projects.
