Innovate. Investigate. Discover.

Our mission is to support undergraduates in the pursuit of discovering new information, investigating factors of influence, and innovating original work under the collaborative guidance of a faculty mentor.

Our vision is to make collaborative research and scholarly activity a characteristic feature of the undergraduate culture for all AU students, regardless of their identity or major. We strive to develop students’ love of discovery and readiness to contribute to a productive and ethical society through high-impact experiences that foster critical and innovative thinking.


Doing research has given me an academic experience beyond the classroom. I have been able to apply skills as opposed to simply memorizing them, and have learned more than I ever could in a classroom.
