-The Council on Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research has a mission of inspiring undergraduate students from all majors to explore their field of study and engage in research. 

We are a resource for all undergraduates in all majors at Lamar University, and we seek to enrich undergraduate experiences through participation in research, scholarship and creative activity. We help students find and develop opportunities to engage in collaborative research with faculty members and other mentors amongst the academic disciplines. We provide funding opportunities for student research and scholarship through a range of programs.
