What is the Office of Undergraduate Research?

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is a unit of the Pennoni Honors College whose purpose is to facilitate the collaboration of faculty and students in research, scholarly work, or creative projects. We do this through our STAR Scholars program, supporting student travel to present at conferences, the SuperNova program, the Week of Undergraduate Excellence, and other support of students and faculty involved in research. Undergraduate Research gives students an opportunity to learn about knowledge creation in their field. (something about benefits to faculty and to Drexel.)

Why participate in Undergraduate Research?

Are you interested in learning about your field from a different perspective? Do you want to develop your skills? Clarify your goals? Find a mentor? Undergraduate research can help you do all these things. Not only will you develop technical skills, you may develop presentation skills, increased ability to work in a team, problem solving, and a mentor to guide you along the way.

Who can do Undergraduate Research?

Every interested Drexel student can participate in undergraduate research. We work with students from every college and every major. Students can get involved in research at any point in their Drexel career. STAR Scholars is for first year students, but there are many ways to get involved in research on a volunteer basis, as a paid work-study position, or doing research for credit.
