Office of Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) operates to support and encourage undergraduate researchers at the Mississippi University for Women. We provide opportunities for students to participate in projects, conferences, publications, and internships that focus on conducting research and creative exploration. We encourage interactions among students, the university, and the community—and through these interactions, we hope to produce MUW graduates who have valuable skills and impactful experiences. The OUR office is located in Fant Memorial Library.
