The mission of the Office of Undergraduate Research is to:
- Enhance the educational experience of all undergraduates by supporting co- and extracurricular research opportunities that involve them in knowledge creation and dissemination,
- Foster civic-minded leaders by supporting them to engage in local and global community-based research opportunities, and
- Equip students with the work-skills required in the 21st century workplace by supporting collaborative and inter-disciplinary research opportunities.
Underlying our mission is a commitment to equity and access to ensure that all students are able to participate in and benefit from research activities and scholarships.
OUR was established and is currently supported through a generous grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation and by individual donors.
