Get Involved

Participating in undergraduate research deepens understanding of a field through pursuing questions, allows students to make meaningful intellectual and creative contributions to their field, and it is a highly impactful part of the undergraduate experience. The Office of Undergraduate Research at The W brings those opportunities to students interested in engaging in their work at a higher level.
