Undergraduate Research


The Undergraduate Research Program of the  I-CARE grant is housed under the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. 

Our mission is to facilitate research experiences to our undergraduate student body and give our faculty an opportunity to provide these experiences through a classroom setting.  Research shows that the more contact between students and faculty, both inside and outside the classroom, will enhance students’ development and learning outcomes.

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?

Contact a professor in your field to inquire about undergraduate research opportunities.
