What is Undergraduate Research?

ImageAn inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original, intellectual, or creative  contribution to the discipline.

Inquiry learning is believed to be the most powerful way to develop new knowledge, and is an enduring habit of mind that will be valuable during a lifetime.

Students apply what they have learned in the classroom to the exploration of problems and questions at the frontiers of their fields under the guidance of mentors and in collaboration with others.

Undergraduate research enables an original achievement in the arts and sciences to become part of the educational experience of students.
