What is Undergraduate Research?
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 produced by an undergraduate student, that is, someone pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.
We are 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.
Contact a senator:
Students interested in funding should contact the senator who represents their academic school. Senators will help students draft a bill that will go before the entire Senate for approval. For more information, email your senator. Each senator is listed by academic discipline: DSUSA.
