Other Ways to Get Involved

There are many opportunities on campus to get involved in undergraduate research.


Undergradute Research Workshops are facilitated by mentors from the Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) program, and in conjunction with Student Learning Services (SLS) and the Undergraduate Research Initiative. The workshop series aims to have students helping students in research skill development and capacity.

See the full list of workshops, or find out how to become a peer mentor.


USURJ offers interested students the opportunity to join its editorial board and experience the inner workings of an academic journal. Editors volunteer an average of 2-4 hours per week and recruitment usually takes place in the spring.


The SSRL is an interdisciplinary research lab with employment and research opportunities. For more information on how students can get involved, visit the SSRL's student opportunities page.

You can also learn about research projects from a different perspective by signing up as a participant. Log-in to PAWS to find research studies looking for participants.


Volunteering is a great way to gain experience, learn outside of the classroom and meet new people. Volunteer opportunities can be found here!
