Office of Undergraduate Research
Undergraduate research is defined as "an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline" (Council on Undergraduate Research [CUR], 2020). Aligned with Morgan State University President Wilson's Strategic Plan - Growing the Future, Leading the World - the newly created Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) reinforces Strategic Initiative 5 of Goal #1 (Enhancing Student Success).
The measurable benefits of undergraduate research on student academic, personal, and professional development can be qualified and quantified. Thus, it is our responsibility and honor to cultivate student success through innovative approaches to enhancing undergraduate research - meeting the diverse needs and interests of Morganites across all disciplines.
