The Office of Undergraduate Research supports the larger mission of Washington University in St. Louis to advance and protect the process of inquiry by facilitating and promoting faculty-mentored undergraduate research experiences in all schools and all disciplines.
We help students discern their own research paths:
- We offer guidance for students in choosing an area of research interest and finding a mentor.
- We provide opportunities for students to meet potential mentors and to talk with current student researchers.
- We connect students to current research opportunities at WashU and other universities, as well as other funding sources.
- We offer a robust resource for students seeking research opportunities through the OUR website, including detailed information about the benefits of research, how to get started as well as opportunities at WashU and other institutions.
