OURS supports student-faculty teams tackling big questions facing humanity. This support occurs at all phases of student-faculty projects with a focus on mentoring and funding new projects and providing internal and external opportunities to disseminate the triumphs of established projects.
OURS broadly defines research as anything that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to a discipline and believes that students of all majors, class standing and GPA are capable of creating meaningful new knowledge with proper guidance.
