Student Research

Students involved in different types of research

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is committed to research involving both undergraduate and graduate students. The mission of student research is to engage all students in research across all disciplines. The goals of the Office of Research are to:

  1. Introduce students, regardless of discipline, to research: the search or discovery of new information through creative and scholarly works.
  2. Provide the mechanisms for students to search for research funding opportunities.

Center for Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research programs allow students to explore the unknown through hands-on work, which transcends the classroom, with faculty mentors.
