Undergraduate Research

Faculty Research Database

The first step to getting started in research is to find a faculty mentor. The role of a mentor is to:

  • assist in the development and articulation of a project idea and plan.
  • help understand the methods and concepts of research and scholarship within your field.
  • guide and train you in the skills and/or techniques needed to complete a project.

Most students work directly on a faculty project. No pressure to come up with your own idea! There are many ways to find a mentor, including:

Search the OUR faculty research database

Use our database to search for faculty that have research interests similar to your own. Watch our interactive virtual Getting Started in Research workshop and learn how to find faculty mentors through the faculty research database.

Search college/department specific research area pages

Check out research pages for colleges/schools/departments/programs of interest. They are another great starting point to see what kind of research is going on in your field of interest. Note: Be open to departments that are not your own! You can do research outside of your major.

Submit online interest forms

Interested in working with a faculty member in Health Promotion, Education, & Behavior (HPEB) and/or the College of Nursing? Submit the corresponding online form below and you will be notified of next steps.


Faculty Research Database

 This searchable database will allow you to find faculty members by department or keywords and will list the research interests of each professor the database pulls up. Note: This is not a list of job postings, rather research interest areas.
