Important Message from OUR:

The Office of Undergraduate Research is operating virtually and can be reached by email at

All in-person undergraduate research projects are suspended for the Summer. All summer activities on campus will move online or be cancelled. We have created a Resource and FAQ page related to virtualizing undergraduate research.

“In accordance to the governor’s and university’s plan, research will work to move from essential operations to a modified operations mode by Aug. 3. The transition plan for research continues to recognize the importance of safety, to transition back to an in-person student learning experience, and to ramp up research programs.” (COVID-19: Research Continuity Guidance; As part of this plan, “Research for course credit should be permitted only in exceptional circumstances as approved by the appropriate college dean, institute director, or vice president.” (
