HIP Taxonomy: Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities

Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities

Minimum Definition of Practice

Undergraduate research is an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student in collaboration with a faculty member that makes a unique intellectual, scholarly, or creative contribution to the discipline, and for which the student  receives academic credit either through a course or independent study. The student's contribution may be part of a new or ongoing faculty research project (adapted from CUR).
