New office of research for undergraduates to open in August

"In addition to marking a milestone for the Undergraduate Research Forum, 2014 also marks the beginning of a new chapter in research for undergraduates at Miami. This August, a new office of research for undergraduates – the first office at Miami devoted solely to coordinating and progressing undergraduate research – will begin serving students," President David Hodge said.

"Physically located in King Library, the office and its staff will facilitate research activity across the university and market programs to current and prospective students."

More than 2,000 undergraduates work with professors on funded research each year, according to OARS.

The forum, free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Graduate School, OARS and the offices of the president and the provost.
