Florida State University has a long history of nurturing the research and creative interests of its undergraduate students. The many and diverse opportunities to gain practical, hands-on experiences in the arts, humanities, engineering and the sciences enrich students’ academic pursuits and contribute to the development of their problem solving and critical thinking skills. Working collaboratively with faculty and graduate students allows undergraduates to explore ideas and content areas to pursue as careers and in graduate school. In addition, undergraduates’ participation and contributions are vital to the university’s research community. The mission of the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors is to support students and faculty in their joint pursuit of intellectual challenges and to cultivate the future leaders of our increasingly complex and global world.
