You don't have to wait until graduate school to work on research.
Research is driven by curiosity. In CEHD, research takes many forms, from collecting observational data in an on-campus lab to conducting interviews at a youth organization. Learn about more reasons to participate in research on the Office of Undergraduate Research website.
I strongly encourage undergraduate students to get involved in research and apply for a UROP grant. The opportunity this University presents in the way of research is outstanding, and it’s highly important that students not only take advantage of the opportunity, but also do so in a way that helps discovery.

As a student at a top research university, we want you to use the knowledge you’re learning in your classes to make a difference. Research experiences help you develop your professional communication and critical thinking skills and impress potential employers and graduate schools. Doing research in CEHD connects you to what’s happening in the world right now, in areas from educational equity to concussion prevention in sports to children’s mental health.
Prior experience is not a prerequisite for working on a research project in CEHD. You will receive training and guidance from faculty, graduate students and others on the research team.
