Undergraduate Research

John C. Orr, Ph.D., assistant provost

The Undergraduate Research program provides opportunities for University of Portland students to engage in research and creative activities by encouraging and supporting faculty and student partnerships in scholarly pursuits. In many instances, the student joins the faculty member in research that is a part of the faculty member’s research agenda. In addition to exposing students to an enhanced pedagogical environment, these collaborations will assist students in honing their skills and discerning their career path and future direction. The Undergraduate Research program exists to oversee the undergraduate research experience across the institution by ensuring that students have a coherent and quality experience with clearly defined learning objectives and expected outcomes.
