Students

Are you a student currently conducting research? If you haven't registered, please do so in order to be eligible for our support programs and to learn about other research enhancement opportunities. REGISTER

Are you an undergraduate student seeking a faculty mentor? Or do you want more information about undergraduate research?

Stop by 219 Funkhouser for our drop-in hours for more information about getting involved in research.  This is an opportunity for students to ask questions that are specific to their needs.

The Office of Undergraduate Research will also hold information sessions periodically throughout each semester.

Faculty

Let us know that you are willing to serve as an undergraduate research mentor. Registration does not obligate you for participation.
