Welcome to our department’s Undergraduate Research web site. Involving yourself in Undergraduate Research adds a dimension to your University experience that will better prepare you for your future. As a researcher, whether in the lab or field, you will find discovery, challenges, and learn problem-solving skills beyond those you develop in the classroom or teaching laboratory. As an investigator you will learn to work independently as well as part of a team. You will improve both your oral and written communication skills. You will be a better candidate for whatever is the next step in your future.
