ABOUT US



Welcome to the Undergraduate Research Center!
The Undergraduate Research Center – Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences serves students and faculty in humanities, arts, social science, and behavioral science disciplines. Our primary mission is to promote, develop, and celebrate undergraduate student research with the overall goal of enhancing undergraduate education and preparing students for careers in all areas.

Through experiencing the processes of scholarly discovery and the dissemination of their results, students become fully engaged members of the community. We aim to support and increase the retention of humanities, arts, social science, and behavioral science majors by enhancing the visibility, prestige, and material support for participation in undergraduate research and creative activities, both for students and faculty. We achieve our mission through various state-, foundation-, and donor-supported programs, including those that aid students facing socioeconomic, academic, and other challenges.
