Faculty, staff, and post-docs in all disciplines are encouraged to consider involving undergraduates in research, scholarly, and creative endeavors.
The Office of Undergraduate Research is committed to meaningful experiences for everyone who participates in undergraduate research.
Undergraduate researchers learn and contribute most effectively when expectations are clear and their mentors make them valuable members of a team. If you are a mentor who would like to start working with undergraduates, or if you already work with undergraduates, OUR can help you learn more about creating a positive, successful experience with undergraduates for yourself and the students at the University of Iowa.
