Faculty from all undergraduate departments at USD are encouraged to integrate research activities into their course offerings. The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) provides course development support in order to help faculty re-design existing courses. Additionally, the OUR runs the Keck Faculty Fellows program. This program was designed to promote formal research and scholarship programs in departments that traditionally have not had such programs.

We welcome all comments, suggestions, and concerns from faculty members. If you would like to begin a new research program, improve your mentoring skills, or if you are seeking external research opportunities for students in your department, please contact us. If you're interested in posting a research opportunity on the OUR website, please complete the Post a Research Opportunity form. Your posting will be seen at How to Get Started in Research.
