The SOURCE - Syracuse Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Engagement
Undergraduate research work takes many forms but is characterized by a spirit of inquiry, participation in the active conversation of a scholarly, professional or creative field of study, and guidance by a faculty mentor. Student research and creative projects may be produced by students at all levels in classes, labs, recitals, as part of a distinction or thesis program, or independently. Participating in undergraduate research helps you apply what you are learning in class, find a mentor, improve your critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and pursue a topic that fascinates you.
SOURCE offers weekly information sessions to help you get started thinking about your participation in research activities and to connect you with the appropriate resources.
