For Students Main Content
The Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities is for students who are:
- working on a bachelor’s degree
- in any major – or who have not yet declared a major
- ready to get more from their education
Research is conducted in every college and in every major. It can include a scientific laboratory or it can take place in a swamp, barn or library. It can include specialized skills such as foreign languages or statistics. It can include use of SIU resources such as the Morris Library Special Collections, or the University Museum archives. It can result in a research poster with graphs and charts, or it can be best presented in a paper delivered at a scholarly conference. Research is what you want it to be.
Paint, Sculpt, Compose, Act, Write, Film... Creative Activities, by nature, include almost anything your imagination and hard work can produce.
