If you are an undergraduate already conducting research, please register here to be eligible for our programs and to learn about other research enhancement opportunities.
One of the major functions of the Office of Undergraduate Research is the pairing of faculty mentors with undergraduate students to create a formalized, meaningful research experience. Once the mentoring relationship is established, our office provides resesarch assistance, support programs, and further training in research presentation.
Students can volunteer time if they just want to get thir feet wet or they can enroll in more formalized research and/or creative activities opportunites. Either way, help is available through our office.
We encourage you to attend our drop-in hours or one of our information sessions.
Drop-in hours are held in 219 Funkhouser every Tuesday and Wednesday (beginning August 27th). Stop by between anytime between 3:00 and 5:00 to gather general information about how to get started in undergraduate research. This is an opportunity for students to ask questions that are specific to their needs. *Drop-in hours will NOT be held the week of Thanksgiving.
The Office of Undergraduate Research will also hold information sessions periodically throughout each semester. In order to provide a more personalized experience, information sessions are grouped by research interest. If you are unsure which one to attend or have additional questions, feel free to contact us. There are no more information sessions for the Fall 2013 semester. Information sessions will resume in the Spring. Please check back for the full schedule.
