The Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (OURI) serves as a centralized support office for both faculty and students who are engaged in undergraduate research and inquiry. We offer university wide programs such as undergraduate research grants, the annual undergraduate research symposium, the undergraduate research journal etc. We also support departments and all colleges in their undergraduate and inquiry initiatives.
Why get involved in research and creative activities?
Few activities are as rewarding intellectually as research. In addition to the acquisition of invaluable research skills, students learn how:
Undergraduate research can take place in every discipline. It is especially common in the life sciences and physical sciences, where an estimated 40 percent of students nationwide engage in research under faculty mentorship, but it is also found in the humanities, social sciences, and creative and performing arts.
