UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH at Dillard adds value and variety to student's educational experience. With mentoring by faculty members outside the classroom, students in any discipline have opportunities for continuous support to engage in research and creative work in an area of interest. Students develop research or creative projects, collect data, and present findings in a research paper, the Annual Symposium as well as local, regional and national conferences. Students often win awards for their work and eligible projects are considered for publication in the Dillard Univesity Journal of Undergraduate Research (DUJOUR).
Through Undergraduate Research, students build important relationships with key faculty members. If the research or creative work is within a field that you intend to pursue in graduate school or career, this experiences can provide very direct benefits.
Creating new knowledge does not have to wait until your Senior project or Honors thesis. First year and transferring students are encouraged to begin student-initiated research and creative work in their major today. Begin expanding your academic experience by assisting in a research or creative project with a faculty mentor. Workshops, clinics, funding and other support are available to help you succeed in your projects.
For more information on out-of-classroom research and creative activities, contact your academic advisor or visit the Office of Undergraduate Research in the PSB, Room 250.
