Interested in On-Campus Research Opportunities?

Research is happening all over campus but many students do not know how to get involved. The easiest way is to simply talk to your instructors. Don't wait for professors to come to you or for positions to be posted. Let your instructors (and graduate assistants) know that you are interested in getting some hands-on experience doing research. You can also set up an appointment at OSR to discuss your interests and we will help you get started.
