Undergraduate Research:
The Office of Undergraduate Research supports research and creative activity for undergraduates.  In particular, it provides funding for student research projects and hosts the annual Pacific Undergraduate Research & Creativity Conference (PURCC).  In addition, it helps connect students with research and conference presentation opportunities both on and off campus.  The Office also helps faculty who want help in designing undergraduate research experiences and in mentoring undergraduate scholars.
