Poster promoting undergraduate research weekAfter a long wait, with many life changing events, we are ready for our Second Undergraduate Research Week September 19 – 23, 2022!  All week you will learn about the research, creative, and scholarly activities happening across campus and how you can get involved. You will also learn about the available funding and presentation opportunities for 2022-2023.

Research is not just limited to STEM majors, but open to all disciplines and majors. It is what you study in your fields. Whether you are creating art or poetry, analyzing marketing data, developing new educational practices, or discussing gender equality and historical figures, you are doing research.  AND there are so many benefits to engaging in research, creative, and scholarly activities, including[i]:

  • Building self-confidence;
  • Developing critical thinking and leadership skills;
  • Increased persistence; and
  • Opening career and graduate school pathways.

Research may not be easy, but anything worth doing is never easy, and research is worth it. Come join OHIP for the Second Undergraduate Research Week September 19 – 23, 2022!
