We offer a variety of programs for students as they get involved, learn more, and then share their work;


We support and recognize outstanding mentoring of undergraduate students on the KU campus;


We provide instructor resources, recognition, and programs to promote research in the classroom;


We connect with alumni to keep them up to date on their alma mater and to share their success with the research community at KU.
