Center for Undergraduate Research


Please join VP for Research Dr. Gordon Cannon and the Center for Undergraduate Research in congratulating the 2013 Fall Eagle SPUR winners!

Potter's handsThe USM Center for Undergraduate Research was established in October 2011. The overall mission of the center is to enhance the undergraduate experience by promoting and supporting student-faculty collaborations in research, creative projects and scholarship.

The center will provide organizational services for on-going undergraduate research activities and encourage additional collaborations by promoting student research opportunities. Involvement in research has been shown to enhance the educational experience for undergraduates and the center will provide additional organization and visibility to our undergraduate research activities.  Having a Center for Undergraduate Research will improve the climate for academic success for our students.  Through active participation in faculty-mentored research, USM undergraduates will improve as creative and critical thinkers.
