As a centralized academic office at the University, URSC supports undergraduates and their mentors in all types of research, scholarship, and creative works. This includes social & scientific investigations & peer-reviewed publications; critiqued exhibitions & performances; and engineering, architectural, & planning designs, just to name a few. Regardless of the discipline, URSC is focused on empowering students to be professional practioners in their field.
Currently, the primary resources provided by URSC include the Ready for Research workshop series, the RECON peer mentorship program (Research, Education, & Creative Opportunities Network), the student-led Discovery Lecture Series, and the annual URSC Conference each spring.
The primary objectives of URSC are to increase the visibility of existing opportunities, showcase student successes, and connect more students to research experiences.
