the heart of our mission

CURE connects the dots among UO’s three fundamental priorities.

By offering undergraduates outstanding research opportunities,

the Center for Undergraduate Research and Engagement (CURE)

brings together institutional priorities of research excellence,

enhancing student access & success, and enriching the undergraduate experience.

CURE supports students in all eight undergraduate colleges at UO,

taking a broad definition of research that includes scholarship and

creative work in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities.

CURE  collaborates with faculty, the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation, Housing/Residence Life, the Clark Honors College, the Career Center, the Teaching Engagement Program, and other campus partners to:

Connect undergraduates with research and experiential learning opportunities

Provide students with financial support for summer research

Offer workshops on research-related skills

Fund student travel to conferences to present their research

Showcase undergraduate research at events locally and throughout the country

Support campus programs that serve students whose ethnicity and socioeconomic backgrounds remain underrepresented in higher education

Connect With Us! The CURE Advising Office is located in 104 GSH, in the Commons of the Global Scholars Hall. Drop-in advising on undergraduate research opportunities (and distinguished scholarships) is available Monday to Thursday 4-6 pm during the academic year. Make an advising appointment by emailing us to arrange a time.
