The mission of the Office of Undergraduate Research is to promote and facilitate research by undergraduates. It does so by facilitating undergraduate research by maintaining a knowledge base of available opportunities, by uniting students and mentors, and by assisting with funding. The office promotes undergraduate research by providing forums for presentation of research, by assisting students in making effective presentations, and by informing our community of these activities.
