In recognition of the importance of stimulating intellectual curiosity in all disciplines, we seek:
- to extend the opportunity to participate in research/creative activities to all students.
- to encourage and promote student-faculty collaboration across all disciplines.
- to foster dissemination of this work, and
- to find resources for increased opportunities
Undergraduate research is an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate in collaboration with a faculty mentor that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline.
