Undergraduate Research Month: April 2024

Celebrate undergraduate research at NIU all month long.

This April, the Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning (OSEEL) and the University Honors Program invite you to celebrate NIU’s first Undergraduate Research Month.  

Our undergraduate students have many opportunities to gain skills and experience to be future leaders and make impactful change through research and artistry. We’re excited to recognize and promote their achievements, as well as thank their faculty and mentors, with new ways for the campus community to get involved.

NIU’s Undergraduate Research Month coincides with national Undergraduate Research Week, set for April 15-19 by the Council on Undergraduate Research.  

Get Involved

    Students, please fill out a brief survey to share how research impacted your undergraduate experience and thank those who supported you.

Please include a photo if you have one.
