Beginning in May 2009, senior thesis candidates can choose to have their thesis permanently archived online in the university’s institutional repository, by granting the Undergraduate Research Program copyright permission. All senior thesis candidates retain copyright of their work, and can opt to have their thesis permanently archived online, though they are not required to do so.
