Our Mission

The Undergraduate Research Program supports inquiry-driven research scholarship and creative activity.  The program is an advocate for expanded experiential learning that enhances engagement in undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity, including faculty-mentored research and curriculum-based projects. Our goal is to create opportunities for inclusive participation.

Program Overview

For those wishing to excel in scholarly and creative enterprises outside of their classes, this is the right university. UW-Whitewater has a national reputation in undergraduate research, for two reasons: 1) we have terrific student researchers, and 2) we are committed to providing them with first- rate opportunities. In particular, we provide strong financial support of undergraduate researchers and we support top quality mentoring. On this page you will find details of our programs and information on how to be successful as an undergraduate researcher or mentor. If you need additional information on any aspect of our program, or have ideas for what we can do to improve, please contact the program director.
