Research and Creative Projects for Undergrads

The Research & Creative Projects Office helps undergraduate students find opportunities to apply what they learn in classrooms to dive deeper into a field of their interest. Doing research or having hands-on experience in creative projects boosts students’ chances for employment or enhances their placement into a robust program in a professional or graduate school. All students are encouraged to participate in this high-impact practice.
