Office of Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR), a unit of the Pennoni Honors College, was established in the spring of 2010 to support faculty and students who participate in undergraduate research. The purpose of the OUR is to facilitate the collaboration of faculty and students in research, scholarly work, or creative projects through the expansion and development of existing programs, the creation of innovative opportunities for such collaboration both at and beyond the University, and the integration of a culture of research into the educational experience provided by the University.

STAR Scholars & SuperNova

The STAR (Students Tackling Advanced Research) Scholars Program allows first-year students to participate in faculty-mentored research, scholarship, or creative work during the summer after their freshman year. The SuperNova Undergraduate Research Fellows Program challenges motivated undergraduate students between sophomore and senior year to build upon their STAR or undergraduate research experience in progressively demanding undergraduate research experiences, courses, and projects.
