"OUR has been a fantastic resource for undergraduates working with me who are doing excellent work"
- Ryan Bogdan, Assistant Professor, Psychology
The Office of Undergraduate Research promotes and facilitates research by all undergraduates. We encourage faculty involvement in all of our endeavors.
We invite you to attend the Undergraduate Research Symposium each fall and spring to see firsthand what Washington University’s undergraduate researchers have been up to.
We hope you will consider serving as a research mentor to advise, challenge and nurture future generations of scholars.
Why mentor an undergraduate?
"It allows me to participate in the development and training of the next generation of ethnic minority researchers"
"I learn when students ask simple questions about things that I hadn't considered before. They bring a fresh perspective that helps me"
"It's the most fun I have as a teacher"
