Undergraduate Research

Unlike many universities and colleges, undergraduate students at UNI have the opportunity to engage in hands-on research with faculty.

Undergraduate research opportunities take students far beyond the classroom.  Whether it’s an entrepreneurial venture through the College of Business Administration or studying DNA with science professors, research experiences provide lifelong knowledge. Mentored by professors who truly care, students are inspired to make a difference in their careers and communities.

Through learning by doing, students can develop their individual strengths and passions. This is research at its best. This is UNI!
