The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) has compiled online resources that are useful in getting started with thinking about what areas you may be interested in and locating specific projects and research mentors. Additionally, each research event has an archives section with programs and abstract booklets to help you learn about current research projects that include Purdue undergraduate students. Although the OUR’s physical presence is not on-campus this spring, you may still reach out to them at or 765-494-6505.
