The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) supports co- and extra-curricular engagement of undergraduates in faculty-mentored research and creative projects. For example we offer undergraduate research assistantships, travel support for students presenting their research off campus, and an annual campus-wide celebration of undergraduate scholarly inquiry. The OUR is involved in state and national initiatives that promote undergraduate research.
Research means asking a scholarly question and using the tools of an academic discipline to answering it. Approaches to scholarly inquiry can be as diverse as the disciplines they represent. Scholarly inquiry takes place in a variety of settings such as: an art studio, the library, a field site and/or laboratory.
Professor D. Cyrus (School of Music, Theatre and Dance) described the scholarly process as one that requires us to, "envision, learn, create, perfect, present."
