Student Engagement and Experiential Learning
The Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning (OSEEL) defines undergraduate research as "a mentored investigation or creative inquiry conducted by undergraduates that seek to make a scholarly or artistic contribution to the field,” adapted by the Council on Undergraduate Research’s definition.
In OSEEL, we encourage undergraduate research activities that take place in and out of the classrooms, in communities, fields, labs, art studios, on stages, computers and libraries. We believe that when you engage in research during your college career, you are better prepared to address future unsolved problems and to assume important roles as enlightened citizens and leaders.
OSEEL assists undergraduates from all backgrounds and in all majors to find, secure and succeed in such experiences. Our office also supports faculty and staff in mentoring students and garnering funding for their projects.
