There are numerous ways for faculty, undergraduate students and staff members to become involved with OUR.
Why do research?
Research allows you to pursue your interest, to gain new knowledge and to challenge yourself. Working on a faculty-initiated research project gives you the opportunity to work closely with a mentor.
How do I start?
The key to getting started in research is finding a subject you are not only interested in, but also passionate about.
- Get to know professors, teaching assistants, and upperclassmen in your classes and/or departments and find out what kind of research they are conducting
- Take advantage of the opportunities afforded to you. There are listings posted daily for various research opportunities; both local and out of town.
If you are looking for an existing research opportunity, thinking about designing a research project of your own, or just wondering whether or not research is for you, the Office of Undergraduate Research is a good place to start.
