Undergraduate Research

What is research?

Research involves the gathering of data, information, and facts for the advancement of knowledge.

Why participate in undergraduate research?

The goal of undergraduate research is to involve students with the sense of excitement that comes from working to answer important questions in their field. As students feel more connected to their field through meaningful inquiries, they develop all the necessary abilities to complete their undergraduate program and continue their education through graduate school.  

  • Develop relationships with faculty and mentors
  • Develop collaboration, problem solving, and communication skills
  • Discover and contribute meaningful data to your discipline
  • Be better prepared to apply to Graduate or Professional School

How to get started?
