The mission of Office of Undergraduate Research is to support the incorporation of research training in the areas of Business, Education, Humanities, Social Sciences, and STEM into the APSU experience as a means to engage, retain, and promote students and their success.
We are here to connect APSU students with opportunities to conduct research and creative activity. From the application process, to pursuing funding and presenting your findings, we are here to help you every step of the way. You can even apply to receive OUR funding for your project!
When you hear the word “research,” you might think of lab coats and microscopes but that is not the only kind of research! Research and creative activity are common in ALL fields of study. Here are a few examples of projects we have supported:
ALL research and creative activity begins with a question. We define undergradaute research as: "...a scholarly activity conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline." (adapted from National Council of Uundergraduate Research)

Your research project will help you connect with faculty, become immersed in a field of study and gain confidence in your abilities. As you near graduation, you will find it draws a lot of attention from employers and graduate schools.
If you are ready to ask questions, explore solutions, and find answers,
the OFFICE OF UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH can help you make it happen.
