What we do

The IDEA Center aims to provide any undergraduate student with the opportunity to engage in research and creative expression in their field of study. More specifically, the IDEA center assists undergraduates in gaining awareness of research and ethical research practices, and supports them while they work with a faculty mentor to produce a research or creative expression project. The IDEA Center also offers undergraduates opportunities to publicly present their projects to the campus community.
