Undergraduate Research

What is URO?

The Council on Undergraduate Research defines undergraduate research as “An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline.”

Therefore, undergraduate research is any scholarly research or creative work that is conducted as an undergraduate student, that is, before they receive a Bachelor’s degree.

The Undergraduate Research Office (URO) is a university resource for both students and faculty. Our office not only helps recognize and celebrate research on campus but also helps researchers connect with collaborators, and seek funding opportunities to further enhance their work.
