Undergraduate Research (UGR) is student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship that produces “an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original or creative contribution to the discipline.”  Undergraduate Research opportunities include: Departmental Honors Projects, Research Intensive Independent Study, and Research Intensive courses
Spring Symposium
Every Spring, a research symposium is sponsored for the public presentation of the results of students’ research and creative projects. In addition, students have opportunities to submit their work for presentation at state, regional, and national conferences in their disciplines and at the National Council on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) conference
