We encourage all undergraduates to engage in meaningful research or creative inquiry experiences under the guidance of faculty or graduate student mentors.
No matter your intended destination upon graduation—employment or continued education through graduate or professional school—undergraduate research can set you up for what's next.
The undergraduate research experience will vary depending on the field and the nature of the particular project.
Why participate in undergraduate research?
- Engage more deeply in your field of study
- Build a close relationship with a mentor in your field
- Cultivate crucial skills for graduate or professional school and your future career
- Develop your communication and presentation skills
