HELLO WILDCATS!

The Office of Undergraduate Research staff is excited for the new school year and a new month of opportunities and events! Be sure to stop by the Chellgren Center’s Open House on Wednesday, September 20th from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM in the Funkhouser Courtyard and enjoy free ice cream (see flyer below for more details).

If you are new to UK or our office, we are the starting point for any undergraduate student desiring to include mentored research in their undergraduate experience. Our staff helps you navigate the undergraduate research experience through discussion and resources. Students engaged in our programs undoubtedly garner the rewards of inquiry-based learning through creativity and innovation. Our research programs help equip students to become professional, civic, and academic leaders.
