Research Opportunities for Undergraduates:
A Cornerstone of Student Success

Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Various Departments Provide Hands on Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs). Ask your faculty mentor or department chair about opportunities in your department like those in Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Geology.

Conference on Undergraduate and Graduate Student Research (CUGSR)

Talk with your faculty mentor and prepare to participate in this annual conference where students present their own research in a professional setting.

Collaborate with a Faculty Mentor

In addition to REUs and CUGSR, the single most important way to increase the possibility that you will be able to conduct your own independent research while in our college is to talk with your faculty mentor early and often about research opportunities.
