The Office of Undergraduate Research hosts lectures and workshops throughout the academic year.

These events provide you with tools that will help prepare for presentations, improve research techniques, and sharpen your research topics and more.

Organized by the Office of Undergraduate Research, these events are occasionally sponsored by the Provost Office, the Office of Faculty Development and/or the Honors College.

The workshop series is temporarily on hiatus for the 18-19 academic year.
