We offer university wide programs such as undergraduate research grants, undergraduate research symposium, undergraduate research journal, and support for faculty and students through our Peer Mentor program. Our office provides resources and information for faculty and students to:

Get Prepared - Attend faculty and student professional development workshops, enroll in research enriched courses, join an academic club, get exposed to ongoing research projects and scholarly activities
