The University of Utah conducted a study on the initial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on undergraduate research nationwide. UNO students participated in the study, responding to a survey which sought "to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on undergraduates' well-being and research experiences." The results are reported below and may be useful for program directors, students, and others involved in undergraduate research.
Programs & Initiatives
The "Privateer Undergraduate Research & Scholarly UNO Experience," affectionately termed "PURSUE," connects students in all disciplines with faculty research mentors who will guide the students through semester-long research projects. The "College of Sciences Undergraduate Research Program," a.k.a. "CoSURP," serves the same purpose within the College of Sciences.
The last two cohorts of PURSUE and CoSURP scholars have been generously funded in part by the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust.
UNO's annual research symposium spotlights the investigative work being conducted on our campus and in our research community. If you are engaged in research, scholarly, creative, or innovative projects, you can use this platform to test your ideas, network with your peers, and win awards! Undergraduate and graduate students who have conducted independent research and who have a faculty sponsor are invited to participate.
Center for Undergraduate Research & Creativity
The Center for Undergraduate Research & Creativity was established to:
- facilitate collaboration among undergraduate students and faculty;
- promote undergraduate research to internal and external audiences;
- encourage new initiatives to create and enhance undergraduate research opportunities.
