On behalf of the Office of Undergraduate Research, for colleagues and students returning, welcome back! And, to our community of folks just joining our campus community, welcome! In the OUR bi-weekly newsletter you will find an abundance of information and resources supporting undergraduate research across the 18 colleges. We encourage you to view the opportunities, share it with others, and connect directly if there are ways to partner.
Some exciting news is found here, including a congratulations to the 8 Dee Scholarship recipients! Additionally, a standing ovation for the 234 Undergraduate Research Summer Symposium presenters representing diverse fields who presented research this summer at the University of Utah Alumni House. In addition to University of Utah presenters, student presenters represented 79 different universities including our very own summer undergraduate research programs and our 12 OUR Program Partners. Summer is ending warmly, and with these sunny vibes we are inviting all of you to continue to mentor, research, and be OUR campus community that fosters a thriving research community into the 2023 – 2024 academic year.
