What is Undergraduate Research?

Undergraduate research (UGR) is broadly defined as original research and scholarly or creative work within or across academic disciplines that is conducted by an undergraduate student or team of students, usually with guidance from a faculty or external mentor. It is a process of careful inquiry, methodology and outcomes leading to the discovery of new information or the generation of creative works.
