The Undergraduate Research Center (URC) supports students and faculty in building mentoring relationships that enable students to participate in research, scholarship, and creative activities. We help spark creativity, open doors to new ideas, and help nurture a lifelong love of learning.
Undergraduate research is considered a high-impact student experience. By conducting research and other creative activities, students set themselves apart from their peers, gain a sense of excitement about their studies, and develop real-world experience.
