Undergraduate Research


Many people believe that university research is for faculty and graduate students. We know that undergraduate students have exciting ideas that are worth researching, and we're providing many opportunities for them to do so! Whether you're an incoming freshman, a senior or somewhere in between, you can benefit from exciting opportunities to perform research on campus, in the community and even in another country. You can choose to work alone, in groups or assist an instructor with a project.
