What is Bobcat IDEA?

As part of the university's most recent Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Bobcat IDEA  supports and promotes undergraduate research and creative expression. Innovation, Discovery, Exploration, and Analysis (IDEA), the theme of the current QEP, includes three interrelated goals: assisting undergraduates in gaining awareness of research and ethical research practices; helping undergraduates synthesize current research on a topic they're interested in; and enabling undergraduates to produce a research or creative project.

As the office which implements Bobcat IDEA, The IDEA Center helps coordinate and promote the QEP's three goals.
