Why join the Undergraduate Research Lab?

The Undergraduate Research Lab provides all students an opportunity to immerse ourselves in academic research. This high-impact practice moves our experience to a next level experience. This provides undergraduates a graduate level experience with presenting at an academic symposium.

As first-generation, minoritized, transfer-undergraduates dive into the world of research, who aspire for our mentors to help us acquire critical skills necessary to enter graduate school, and help underscore the real-life applications of interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary high-impact practices
