Explore. Discover. Create.

The Center for Undergraduate Research exists to connect UF students and researchers in ways that go beyond traditional classroom settings. Scholarly work mentored by research faculty is a form of active learning that fosters critical and independent thinking, creativity, and understanding of the research process, and it hones analysis, problem-solving, and communication skills. The Center for Undergraduate Research is committed to fostering a culture of research that encourages all students to include a research component as a critical part of their undergraduate experience.
