Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) are opportunities for undergraduates to engage in authentic research experiences outside of the classroom. Often hosted in the summer, the programs include professional development and other experiences meant to immerse the undergraduate in the culture and community of their chosen professional field. Undergraduates that do these programs will gain transferable skills that will better prepare them for graduate school or professional careers.
