SURI's vision is to engage all of our undergraduate students across the STEM disciplines in cutting-edge scientific research.

Why is Research Valuable?

Participating in undergraduate research gives you the opportunity to:

  • Work one-on-one with internationally distinguished faculty;
  • Participate in cutting-edge research projects with far-reaching impact;
  • Make significant contributions to a field you care about; and
  • Enhance your competitiveness for graduate or professional school admission or high-level employment.
