Undergraduate research a WSU hallmark

PULLMAN, Wash. – Providing opportunities to participate in research and creative activities marks a fundamental aspect of Washington State University’s commitment to provide undergraduate students with a truly transformational college experience.

Hundreds of our world-class faculty members mentor undergraduate students to offer an experience few institutions can match. Students benefit from these hands-on lessons in numerous ways: working in teams, creative problem solving, exploring potential careers, mentorship from faculty members, and better understanding of others’ research.

Read testimonies about how undergraduate research opportunities at WSU have encouraged students in their major studies and prepared them for employment after graduation in a blog by Provost Dan Bernardo at https://provost.wsu.edu/2016/12/12/undergraduate-research-wsu-hallmark/.
