    Independent research represents a unique learning strategy for many students. Undergraduate Research at NSM is an integral part of student learning. The intense immersion of undergraduate students in research helps them develop their scholarly pursuits. The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM) Faculty are dedicated to helping interested students identify and approach areas of research. The faculty take pride in the process of refining their students’ interests into focused project topics. 

    Held on Spring Assessment Day, the URS@NSM is an opportunity for undergraduates to present their research and creative projects to the broader university community. Undergraduates from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and other disciplines may present their current and recent academic projects, showcasing the diversity of topics, approaches and interests. The Symposium also serves as a resource for undergraduates not yet engaged in research. These students can learn how their peers developed their intellectual interests, current projects and faculty or community connections. Finally, URS@NSM is a portal through which students, faculty, staff, prospective students and alumni can witness the manner in which student projects enhance faculty work and also serve the greater community.
