The Geosciences are vigorous and rapidly evolving fields of science, and direct student participation in discovery drives deep learning. The College of Geosciences values the widespread participation of all of our students in our internationally-recognized research programs. We encourage and support the presentation of student-led research from local to global venues and have organized programs to engage students with research opportunities.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.
