The Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (CURS) supports faculty-led research and scholarly activity with undergraduates in a variety of ways including: faculty and student development activities, sponsoring the monthly student research seminars, assessing the impact of student research on campus and by offering student research grants.
We define undergraduate research as "an educational experience in which a student, in collaboration with a faculty mentor, strives to answer an open-ended question within the discipline and/or make a creative contribution to the discipline."
Research can be done in a laboratory, in the field, in the library or in an art studio. We are interested in cultivating the creative activity of students from all academic disciplines.
