Purpose of the IDEA Center

The IDEA Center focuses on undergraduate research and aims to provide all undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in research and creative expression in any field of study. The IDEA center provides a space to assist undergraduates in gaining awareness of research and ethical research practices, and to help them synthesize, produce, and disseminate a research or creative expression project.
