OUR Mission

The Office of Undergraduate Research provides support, resources, and research opportunities for undergraduate students through faculty-mentored research programs. Research enables you to work one-on-one in collaboration with a faculty mentor, and to contribute to original scholarship at the undergraduate level. By participating in our research programs you will:

  • become a more flexible and creative critical thinker;
  • contribute to your academic discipline;
  • develop and hone your leadership and collaboration skills;
  • contribute to your professional growth and advancement, better preparing you for life upon graduation.

Of students who participated in OUR mentored research projects, 97% believe their research experience benefited their education and enhanced their academic success, increased the competitiveness of their graduate/professional school applications, and proved to be personally and intellectually gratifying.
