Undergraduate Research

Undergraduates who engage in supervised research, scholarship, and creative endeavors experience positive personal, academic, and professional benefits beyond those provided by other college experiences. Our staff offers UIC students from all backgrounds and in all majors information and resources that help them find, secure, and succeed in such experiences–on and off campus and nationally and internationally. We also support faculty and staff in mentoring students and garnering funding for their projects. We are home to a number of signature initiatives, including the Undergraduate Research Experience opportunity database and the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Award, and a partner with campus units on several others.
