What We Do
At the Office for Undergraduate Research (OUR), we believe that students who engage in research during their college careers are better prepared to address future unsolved problems and to assume important roles as enlightened citizens and leaders. We help undergraduates get connected to the larger Carolina research community, find research funding, and share their research with others.
