Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) 

One of the outstanding opportunities offered through the Office of Undergraduate Research is engagement in research and scholarly projects. The program offers research experiences for undergraduates collaborating with UNF faculty members across the disciplines. The Office of Undergraduate Research assists students in planning for an undergraduate research experience, identifying faculty mentors and projects, defining research goals, identifying sources of funding, as well as presenting and publishing research findings.

One of the greatest benefits of becoming involved in research as an undergraduate is the insight it will give you on how to learn, how new knowledge is created, and what you can accomplish when you become actively engaged in addressing your own research question.

Other benefits include:

  • Research opportunities which contribute to meaningful scholarly pursuits 
  • Sharpen your critical and analytical skills 
  • Work one-on-one with faculty mentors 
  • Prepare for graduate level study 
  • Clarify your career goals and develop and improve skills that will prepare you for a career 
  • Honors designation on your diploma and transcripts
