How can the Office of Undergraduate Research help you? You tell us. But here are a couple of areas where we know we can help you.
- We provide activities (workshops, seminar speakers, and culminating poster symposium) to complement the research carried out by your summer undergraduate researchers.
- We coordinate with the Honors College to administer the WVU SURE program - an opportunity for you to have a paid, full-time undergraduate student help with your research.
- We will help you connect you with undergraduate researchers with educational backgrounds and interests that align with your research interests and needs.
- We offer proposal writing advice (budgetary and language) as you work to secure funding for research involving undergraduates or for undergraduate research sites.
- We offer advice on how to administer an undergraduate research site or even just a couple of undergraduates in research.
Please note that safety is a priority in all academic and research laboratories at West Virginia University.
